Bachelor of Arts, majors in Spanish and Latin American Studies and Politics and International Relations, Diploma in Language (Japanese Studies)
"I started learning languages for fun and got hooked on the interesting grammar and fascinating cultural knowledge. I study Spanish in my Bachelor of Arts and Japanese in my Diploma in Languages. I really love learning languages as it’s a constant challenge and joy, and it gives you access to different ways of thinking, which is very valuable. Learning new languages opens doors all over the world, not just with employers but also socially and for travel.
I am interested in doing something political and I want to work somewhere where I can help facilitate smooth cooperation across borders of language and culture. Language learning and the international understanding that comes with it will be increasingly important in a globalised world."
