All applicants to the University (from the UK and Overseas) are required to show evidence of English Language proficiency.
The minimum English Language requirement for this course is either:
GCSE English Language grade C / 4, or;
IELTS 7.0, or;
An acceptable equivalent qualification.
A degree in Modern Languages and Cultures paves the way for a broad range of careers. You'll develop intercultural awareness and enhanced communication skills - both highly valued by employers. You'll also acquire transferable expertise at the very heart of language learning, including enhanced powers of perception and interpretation and advanced decision-making and multitasking skills.
With the UK's departure from the European Union, The British Council has cited Arabic, French, German and Spanish as among the top languages required for the UK to remain competitive globally (CBI/Pearson Education and Skills Annual Report 2018), underlining the fact that your language skills will offer you an advantage in business and finance careers.
You'll develop independence and self-confidence during your residence abroad, and your intercultural communication skills will make you a strong contender for media, journalism and PR roles.
Many of our graduates go straight into business services, marketing, advertising, management, banking or communications. Others pursue postgraduate study or further vocational training to become accountants, lawyers, teachers (both in the UK and overseas) or to enter the Civil Service.
