Course summary

Birmingham’s fusion of language and culture places employability at its heart, preparing you to live and work as an engaged citizen of the world.

Studying an undergraduate modern language from beginner or advanced level (French, German, Spanish or Russian) alongside Music is highly complementary and an exciting opportunity to contextualise your knowledge in each discipline. At the Univeristy of Birmingham, language is studied through the lens of the target culture's literature, history, politics and society, and through total immersion on the Year Abroad.

Employability

Over 93% of our Modern Languages and Music graduates enter work or further study within six months of graduation (DLHE 2017).

  • Strong communication skills in English and one or more other languages
  • A deep understanding of other cultures
  • Critical thinking skills, alongside the ability to research, analyse and interpret information
