Modern Languages Mixed

Studying a language degree offers you the best of both worlds – teaching of structure, grammar, etymology, culture and literature will take place within lectures, and this knowledge is then reinforced through tutorials and seminars, where topics covered in lectures can be debated and discussed in further depth.

Although language courses differ depending on the university, most will last for four years as opposed to the conventional three. This is because your third year will usually be spent abroad, with the option of either working or studying at a foreign university (which will look great on your CV, as well as allowing you to further develop your spoken language skills).

Universities in this list offer degrees in one or more of: French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish
