    Hello!
    I just have a couple of questions about the English Language and Linguistics courses.
    What career path will I have after the three years? Because I would really love to become a teacher but I've read that without a QTS I'll not be able to teach in normal English schools.
    What can I do? I'll no be able to pay 9000 £ in the next future and I'll have a debt with the student loans company fot the three years of my undergraduate course!
    I'm an EU students and would like to teach english worldwide, can someone give some advice about this degree and its career path?
    Thank you

    Hardly any degrees include QTS, and most of those that do are primary education. If you want to teach English in a high school in the UK or an international school abroad then you need to do an English-related degree (English Language and Linguistics is fine), and then either a PGCE or SCITT (both of these routes give you QTS).

    Hi

    I am going to do English language and linguistics at Southampton hopefully and it can lead to a lot of careers! I want to become a forensic linguist for the police but you could become a speech therapist, a lexicographer, an English as a second language teacher and many more!

    I think that to become an English as a second language teacher you'd need to complete a masters degree in TEFL - teaching english as a foreign language
