Lizzie Fane

  • Meeting students who have recently returned from foreign placements is a fantastic way to kickstart your year abroad research and enthusiasm - you can ask your burning questions and see their excitement (or not?) for the destination you're considering. International Office staff are on hand to explain your options, and it's also useful to hear from visiting graduate speakers and careers advisors who will help you get your head in the game. We are working with Routes into Languages to put together listings of upcoming events and activities to inform you about studying and working abroad during your degree course, but please do get in touch if you have any events to add to the list!

  • Judy Verses is the President of Global Enterprise and Education for Rosetta Stone responsible for all institutional business across all geographies. She holds a B.Sc. in Business Administration from the University of Connecticut and was a winner of the Washington Business Journal Award for "Women Who Mean Business" in 2009. She was recently announced as a Finalist in the Women In Technology annual ‘Women in Leadership Awards’. We leapt at the chance to interview her and find out more about her plans for Rosetta Stone and her thoughts on the year abroad, language education and global opportunities for linguists.

  • Thanks to Routes into Languages, I was lucky enough to attend a talk about careers for linguists at GCHQ: my secret dream alternate career. (Though now I’ve told you that, there’s no chance whatsoever.) In fact, I’m quite excited by the fact that GCHQ’s Cyber team are obviously going to read this article to check that I’m not causing trouble, so - Hi guys! Keep up the good work :) Here's a roundup of GCHQ: what they do, whether or not they have a license to kill, why languages are important, what GCHQ linguists do, the experience and skills they are looking for, what a graduate role involves, plus top advice and tips for applying for a graduate role.

  • Idioma is a fashion brand which fuses world languages and unique design to encourage multiculturalism and a fascination with foreign languages. They are offering Year Abroaders a massive 25% off their full range of men and women's clothing!

  • The Language Assistant Song

    Friday, 11 April 2014

    Ellie Davis has just finished her year abroad as a Language Assistant in Germany, and has written this brilliant song about her experiences...

  • We are delighted to announce that is now - officially - a groovy Shoreditch/Silicon Junction/Tech City startup! We have moved into our new office on Curtain Road, surrounded by young media agencies, pop-up shops, student-centric businesses, tech speak and skinny jeans. We were going to try and fit in by sticking an inspiring-yet-butt-clenchingly-cheesy slogan on the wall ("If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself." - Henry Ford) but TYA is not about us - it's about you. We would SO MUCH rather use this as an opportunity to find out more about our amazing, international, linguistic, globe-trotting network, and show you off to the world! The best way we thought we could achieve this is if you might consider sending us a postcard...

  • The year abroad is a weird and wonderful thing. Weird, because you don't realise how much creative control you have had over it until you're back at university sitting your finals, and wonderful too - because whether or not you've had a great time, you have DONE IT. You've lived outside your comfort zone, you've survived, and you've had one hell of an experience. Here are some Q&As to help you understand the basics.
