We are one of the few universities in the UK that offer September and January start dates for almost all of our courses.- Based in Buckingham on a riverside campus, we are only 20 minutes’ from Milton Keynes central station and a short drive from Bicester, Aylesbury, Banbury and Northampton. There is free parking on-site and we are within easy reach of London and Oxford.- Our award-winning small class tutorials ensure every student is known by name and supported throughout their studies, including by dedicated personal tutors.- As pioneers of the two-year degree, we offer a condensed version of the traditional three-year degree, meaning you can gain a full honours degree and complete your studies a whole year earlier. Alternatively, you can complete both your undergraduate and master’s degree with us in just three years: saving you time and money.We also launched the UK’s first private Medical School, which recently secured General Medical Council (GMC) accreditation. The GMC commended us for our ‘excellent professional, academic and pastoral support that extends throughout the University and clinical learning environments’.Develop your linguistic competence in both French and Spanish and gain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of their cultures, communities and societies.Languages are taught at Intermediate Level (stages 3-6) and Advanced Level (stages 5–8). Students will also have the opportunity to undertake a dissertation project and/or, subject to availability, an external work placement in France and/or Spain.Upon completion students will have a range of transferable skills directly relating to employability, as well as developing their communication, critical and analytical skills. It is designed for students who wish to work in a range of careers or pursue further studies within an international context or related to international institutions.**Flexible Honours**Make your degree as unique as you. As one of our flexible honours degrees, you have the freedom to tailor your Modern Foreign Language degree to reflect your interests and passions by combining it with a wide range of other subjects taught here at the University. This means that when you graduate you will have a highly personalised degree that will suit you and your aspirations perfectly.At the end of the degree this equates to having 210-240 units in modern languages and 120-150 units in other subjects of your choice. If you study 90 units or more from a single subject, you will be awarded with a combined honours degree (for example, if you study over 90 units in Psychology you will be awarded with the degree Modern Languages with Psychology).
