    Do I need a degree in the subject to use my knowledge for a career?

    Do most employers for languages use tests or is the degree really vital?

    I have an A at A-level in my target language, have lived in the country and worked on a retail level for 6 months using it. I have references from this which do not outline my linguistic skills but rather my working ability.

    Is this for MFL? if so most of the answers are online for your question. You should have two languages (but one can be done through an SKE if the like you!), and the main one should be at degree level and the other at A Level standard. To be honest you can probably say you lived in the country to help your application.

    It might be different if you have a degree in general any way.


    You should probably just email them and explain your situation - thats what I'm doing

    are you applying for 2017 entry?
