Student voices

In this section we hear from real students about their experiences of studying languages at university. They discuss some of their favourite modules - when you study for a degree in modern languages, you don't just get to study that language.

Languages at uni: what you study

You will also have the opportunity to follow a range of content modules which will help develop your understanding of the culture and society where your chosen language is spoken. Content modules are hugely varied -you can choose to specialise in society, history, politics, literature and culture, film, linguistics and so on. You could also do European Studies, Latin American Studies etc.
