This is a three year degree programme which is available to those applicants who can prove with good reason that they are unable to undertake the year abroad required of the standard four-year degree programmes.
You’ll spend your third year teaching English, attending university, completing a work placement or working for a non-government organisation (NGO) in one or more countries relevant to the language or languages you are studying. This opportunity offers you a unique first-hand experience to step out of the classroom and immerse yourself in the country’s culture and develop your language skills further. It’s also a fact that studying abroad gives you a head start in getting a job after you graduate, with around 60% of employers, from a variety of industries, saying that international study enhances employability.
Join Modern Languages and Cultures and you will be part of a department with a long and prestigious research tradition: French, German, Italian and Spanish have been taught here for over 100 years. We are constantly updating our portfolio of programmes and recently introduced a new Chinese programme which benefits from our exclusive links with Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, China. We are also the only UK university to offer research-led and language Basque modules.
We are justifiably proud of our excellent record on graduate employment. Our graduates go on to careers in all sectors worldwide. These include the media, industry and commerce, finance, local and central government, administration, translation, interpreting and teaching in schools and universities.
Many of our students also undertake postgraduate study, either in our own department or, for example, on a PGCE, translation or law conversion course. All students have the opportunity to gain employability skills and work experience and we work closely with the University Careers & Employability Service to ensure that the curriculum delivers the skills that graduate employers are looking for.
