Course summary

**Why choose this course**Our flexible BA (Hons) Modern Languages (French and Spanish) focuses on training you to be a world-class language expert. You will need an A-level or equivalent in at least one of the languages, but you can take one of them ab initio. You will study both French and Spanish to a high level, be taught in and gain near-native fluency in both languages and develop your understanding of how languages work. You’ll have the opportunity to focus more on one language in the final year. We’re one of the UK’s leading universities for modern languages, with our courses ranked in the top 10 by the Guardian University Guide 2020 and in the top five by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020 for French and Iberian languages. We also achieved 100 per cent overall satisfaction for French studies in the National Student Survey 2019. **What you will study**Our BA (Hons) Modern Languages (French and Spanish) course will improve your practical language skills and allow you to gain a strong understanding of how languages work. You’ll have the opportunity to take translation modules each year of your course. You’ll also learn about the cultures and societies of the countries where your chosen languages are spoken in interactive modules taught in the target language. The course includes a Professional Training placement abroad, giving you the choice between work, study, or a combination of the two. You’ll also have the opportunity to begin learning Portuguese from scratch in your second year.
