Overview

Studied alongside your Film Studies degree, this course is ideal for students who dropped languages at school after year nine or GCSEs, or for those who have no background in languages. In both cases, the pathway offers you an essential skill for success in the global job market.

You will take a 30-credit beginners’ or post-GSCE module in your chosen language which will equate to two hours of language classes plus one hour of cultural studies per week, learning about the main country/ies associated with your chosen language, its culture and history, and its people.
