You must have grade ‘A’ or above at A level (or equivalent) in at least one of your languages. You can begin study of your second language from A level or GCSE standard. For Japanese or Spanish you can also start from beginners level. We welcome native speakers of French or Spanish onto this programme.
You will devote between one-half and two-thirds of your time to your chosen languages, aiming at equal competence in both. The study of languages at degree level requires continuous reinforcement and revision of key concepts and items of vocabulary as well as being introduced to a range of specialist translation skills.
