Course description

The BA European Languages degree allows you to study three languages simultaneously. With a choice of French, German, Italian and Spanish, this degree will allow you to develop fluent linguistic competencies in speaking, listening, reading, writing, translating and interpreting. In addition, you will also have the opportunity to explore the society, culture, social and professional relevance of your chosen three languages through our broad range of options. You will have the option to start one language at beginner level or both at advanced level (in order to study a language at beginners’ level, you must have at least one advanced qualification in one of the languages). You could also study a second language from beginners' level in your second year. Students in the department will be given four hours a week of language work, this includes oral, reading, listening, writing and translation. You will be taught by native speakers and experts in the languages of the department. You will have the opportunity to develop your linguistic competencies further and explore the diverse cultural heritage of each language. We are an exceptionally friendly department, and our students benefit from the close contact with teaching staff. At Aberystwyth University, we endeavour to provide you with an enriching, memorable student experience that will be cherished.
