Languages for Employability

This capacity-building language programme is targeted at Trinity postgraduates who wish to pursue language study on top of their own specialist fields. Language capabilities are key in a globalised world. Language learning also enhances intercultural knowledge, critical thinking and overall communication skills, further enhancing graduate attributes. Trinity encourages all postgraduates to enhance their existing language skills or to learn a new language through the Languages for Employability programme.

Languages for Growth and Jobs

Good language and communication skills are vital for both individuals and businesses to succeed. EU firms often forfeit business contracts because of poor language skills and a lack of knowledge about other cultures … graduates with international experience fare much better in an increasingly international job market.

Language skills are critical for businesses with ambitions to increase international trade and exports. Language skills help students become more culturally aware and mobile.
