I'm in Year 12 at the moment, so I won't be applying until December. But I've been looking up courses all year so far, and I've got a few ideas.

1) Japanese, French and Business
2) Liberal Arts
3) French and Japanese with TEFL
4) Asia Pacific Studies
5) American Studies + language(s)

My A Levels are French, Religious Studies and Business Studies, with an AS in Spanish.

I'm very passionate about languages and I'd like to learn Japanese or an Asian language. I also like American and European culture too. Career-wise, I'd like to go into business, teaching or translation. But I would also like to try out different subjects, hence I looked at Liberal Arts.

From an outsider's perspective, which course would you advise me to do?

If you want to go into business do a business degree not a language degree.Could do Business studies,business management etc.

Rather than just Liberal Arts, have a look at UCL's Arts & Sciences. It has a compulsory language element, core courses that would equip you with a range of skills, and a choice of other subjects according to what you want to do in the end.

I was looking at business studies. I'm not entirely sure though if I want to go into business, and I don't want to make the mistake of going into a degree and having a change of heart with no other option left. So that's why I'm looking at combinations of subjects.

Français bien sûr! J'ai fait les examens que l'année dernière et j'ai reçu la note A au niveau AS. En ce qui concerne mes autres matières, mes notes prédites sont A,A,B en l'entreprise, l'espagnol et la philosophie. L'année prochaine je prédis les notes AAB-BBB.

Bien, je suis d'accord. C'est le problème, bien qu'il soit possible de travailler comme professeur, il n'existe pas la demande pour les francophones de nos jours. Pourtant, le français est encore plus utile que les autres langues comme l'espagnol ou même le chinois, grâce à sa popularité dans la diplomatie et le tourisme. Donc, ce n'est pas une impasse en termes de choix de carrière.

J'ai patrimoine québécois et alors l'apprentissage du francais et quelque chose très spécial pour moi.

Néanmoins, je considère d'étudier le japonais, le coréen ou le russe à côté du français. Mais c'est tellement difficile à decider quel cours que je devrais choisir.

Do not do a business degree.

Look at specific modules of specific courses. These will vary at different universities even if the name of the courses is the same. See how much flexibility you have to choose modules in different departments.
