Our courses are unique in that they have a triple focus on developing language proficiency, cultural awareness and professional skills. In each language, we offer modules at all six different levels recognised in the Common European Framework. Our courses give you the flexibility to combine up to four different languages. In each language, we also offer a range of thematic modules in areas such as contemporary cinema, culture, society, art, history, and politics. Some modules are project-based. We put the emphasis on your needs and professional aspirations; consequently our skills modules are designed to develop web and publishing skills, multimedia skills, film production and video editing skills such as subtitling, translation and interpreting skills. All languages offer six levels from ‘beginners’ (A1) to ‘mastery’ (C2). We offer thematic modules and translation, interpreting and subtitling modules, plus a project/dissertation module for each language. We also offer Arabic and Chinese classes, subject to demand. This four-year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of study. During your Year Zero, you study four academic subjects relevant to your chosen course as well as a compulsory academic skills module.
