Course description

If you have a facility for languages and you love to learn about other cultures, this is a great opportunity to really broaden your horizons. You choose two major languages and one minor. We teach Catalan, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. Italian and Luxembourgish are available but only as minor subjects. When it comes to your year abroad, we offer more choice than many universities. You’ll spend your third year in two different countries, studying at universities or on work placements. The long list of possible destinations includes France, Germany, Spain, Cuba, Quebec and Cracow. A degree like this is often the first step towards a much richer cultural and intellectual life, and a career that could take you all around the world. Graduates work for the European Commission, the diplomatic service, the media, international business and marketing. Many become translators or interpreters.
