Gaelic medium studies

Gaelic medium studies graduates can be found in a wide range of professions.

The national annual report 'what do graduates do?' gives you an overview of typical graduate career paths.

Graduates from Gaelic Medium studies may be united by a common interest in the Gaelic language, and may be found in a range of roles where language skills are important such as: translator, broadcast journalist, or radio producer. However there are lots of other possibilities as about 60% of graduate jobs are open to graduates from any discipline, so graduates can also be found in other contexts such as social care and art and design. There is a database of graduate jobs on the prospectswebsite where you can look up different kinds of jobs and find out about entry requirements, pay scales, training and where to find work.  

Also on the prospects site is a range of information sheets for different subject areas outlining potential career options related to those subject areas.
