Hey,
So I am an A Level student, I came from France like 7 month ago to study in England.
As I said on the title, I chose : Maths, French & Spanish A Level
I would like to know what kind of job can I do after college...
I wish to study in the business in Uni but I am really lost because it is completely new for me...
I've chose Maths because it's really helpful for my future, I chose French because I talk fluently this language obviously and Spanish because I did Spanish from High School for 5 years which I got good results on this subject.
I didn't choose Economics or Business Studies because my tutor told me that it will be really hard for me to write a lot of essays because I don't talk English as a real English speaker, I mean that I have some difficulties to talk but I am practicing.
So that's why I chose those subjects and I would like to know for my future as well.

Thanks ;D

Why not give yourself a chance to improve your English. Staying here for a couple of years should help a lot. It really isn't necessary to have studied business before to take it at university and lots of people won;t have done.

Last time I heard, universities aren't very happy with people who do language A-levels in their native language. I hope that isn't an issues when it comes to applying.
If it will be an issue for me about find an uni, I will go to France, I think studying in England and doing A Level will be helpful, isn't it ?

Thats great! Sounds like you are really going for it and have an aptitude for languages. Lots of European students go to British universities and take degrees like business. Just give yourself time to learn to a good enough level and don't get down if it doesn't all happen at once.

If you want to apply to English universities, they don’t like A-Levels in your native language and some discount it. I’m not sure about French universities. May be a good idea to check entry requirement specifics before applying.

But best of luck with your studying!

Any idea what sorts of jobs you might be interested in? Perhaps if you have a few ideas people can suggest further ideas. Which part of England are you living in? How are your A levels going?

Doing A level is definitely helpful in England. Some university courses (really only the most competitve ones) will look into own language A levels, but lots of people do them without it being an issue.

I am interresting about business but I still don't know what exactly I am going to do... In France I did Economics, Sociology, Business Studies for 2 years... In college, you need to choose a speciality, only 3 of them are most taken by french students (Scientific, Economics&Sociology and Litterature) So I took Economics&Sociology speciality and I really enjoy it. Currently I am living in Manchester. And my A-Level is going great, I had good results before holidays, only GCSE English Language is a lit bit a problem for me, because I only did 1 month of this subject and next week I have GCSE Exam of English Language and then it's over if I got a C, I mean if I have at least a C on the exam, I will keep going with only 3 subjects. If I fail, I can do again this subject next year and I do the same exam, and I think I will fail this year, because it's impossible to get a great results in only 1 month... I need more time, to get a better mark on it.

Other than the sciency jobs- most jobs don't require specific A levels- or even specific degrees! You can be a lawyer (as long as you do Law at Uni or a GDL/SQE course after Uni). You can be an economist, a translator, a banker. The language skills makes you slightly more useful than other applicants- but lets be honest. The subjects you take dont matter too much. The grades matter a LOT more (albeit overtime A levels become irrelevant as your degree and experience at the job become a more important part of your CV).

I wouldnt be too concerned about the English GCSE - you've plenty of time to pass it. There is no mad rush on that one. As noted above A level scores are far more important, although you do need to look at university requirements for English to avoid applying somewhere which would not work out.

You could always do a management/ economics type course with languages? Perhaps business with Spanish and possibly ab initio Italian. That would help in the employment market.
