Good news for German speakers!
German tops the list for highest paid and most in demand languages in the UK in 2016.
If you want to advance your career prospects by learning a foreign language, knowing German will earn you a higher salary than French, Arabic or Spanish, according to the latest statistics. Out of over one million job postings German came first, based on an analysis by the job search engine Adzuna.
Whether you want to work in law, marketing, tourism, media, accountancy, or sales, there are thousands jobs currently (September 2016) advertised. Many businesses operate globally, especially in science and research German is the most used language. Germany offers research fellowships to scientist from abroad.
If you are a student and feel the fees in the UK are exorbitant, why not look at the top German universities. Studying in Germany is much more affordable than in the UK and many top universities lecture in English especially for Bachelor of Science or Master’s programmes, but “a basic knowledge of German must be proven”.
