The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.

At least 1 reference(s) should be provided.
A motivation letter must be added to your application.
Language training begins in the first year. If you have A Level Spanish, you’ll take an advanced course that covers speaking, writing, translation and comprehension. If you don’t have A Level Spanish, you will take a beginners’ course, designed to bring you up to speed quickly.
You will also study social, political and cultural aspects of Spain and Latin America. Optional modules include Portuguese and Catalan.
Throughout the course you’ll choose economics modules that will give you a solid grounding in modern economic theory, incorporating the issues underlying current debates on economic policy and the quantitative and analytical skills essential for economists.
Second-year modules in Hispanic Studies explore literature, art, pop culture, society and linguistics. For example, you might study the politics of conformity in Franco’s Spain and the cinema of the Hispanic world. Your language training continues, preparing you for your year abroad.
You will spend your third year working or studying in Spain or a Latin American country. Recent placements include internships at a corporate services firm in Panama, marketing and events in the Canary Islands and volunteering in Costa Rica. You could teach English in a Spanish school or study at a leading university. When you return to Sheffield for your final year, you’ll be confident, energised and inspired.
Many of our graduates go into translating, teaching and interpreting. Others find their wider cultural awareness and their ability to analyse texts in another language are valuable ancillary skills in business, government and non-profit organizations.
