Is it true that a Modern Foreign Language at GCSE or equivalent is required for entry to university?

Nov 2019

How vital is taking a modern foreign language at GCSE to university entrance?

APPLYING ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
Answer

The Russell Group of universities has published guidance on these questions and I advise you to review their advice at russellgroup.ac.uk. Of course the Russell Group does not speak for all universities. It is important that any intending applicant meets the entry requirements for a course before applying through UCAS. It may be advisable, therefore, to consult individual universities for clarification.
