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.

At Birmingham, undergraduate language is taught through the lens of the target culture's literature, history, politics and society, and through total immersion on the Year Abroad.

You will choose to study one, two or three languages to a high level in your degree course. If you choose to study one language, you must have either French, German, Italian, Russian or Spanish at advanced level. Alongside this, you can study up to two other languages, which can include up to two from scratch (as long as one of these is French or Spanish). Languages offered at beginner level include the languages mentioned above, as well as Portuguese, Catalan, Chinese and Japanese. You will also complement your studies with a vocational understanding of the working world, in areas which can include translation, language teaching, legal cultures, business and enterprise.

Employability

Global workplace skills are developed throughout the lifespan of our Modern Languages programmes, which enable our graduates to thrive in a number of professional environments. Birmingham’s Modern Languages graduates have a consistently high employability rate, as 93% of our BA Modern Languages graduates enter work or further study within six months of graduation (DLHE 2017).

Modern Languages graduates have a wide range of skills that are valued by employers, such as:

  • Strong communication and presentation skills in English and one or more other languages

  • Critical thinking skills, alongside the ability to research, analyse and interpret information
