BA Arabic and Middle Eastern Studies (2010)

Summary: Recent graduate Hamzah tells us his favourite part of his degree in Arabic and Middle Eastern Studies and his career plans now he has graduated.

I decided to study this programme as I thought it was an interesting course, and Leeds has an excellent reputation so I knew getting a degree from here would be very beneficial for me.

My favourite part of the course was definitely my year abroad in Morocco. I studied in a university there, improving my Arabic and learning all about the culture and meeting new people. It was great!

I would now like to look for a job somewhere in the Middle East, either working in translation or the oil industry, or a multinational company - there is a wide choice - it's very exciting.
