Mandarin Chinese is the most widely spoken language on Earth, and this degree will develop your language skills and cultural insights to access and engage with one of the world’s oldest and richest cultures. Hull offers excellent facilities in the Language Learning Centre. Our team of Language Learning Advisors offer extra one-to-one support to help you with your studies, as well as a partnership scheme which allows you to practise Chinese with native speakers. While studying for your degree, you have the opportunity to gain a recognised teaching qualification in Trinity CertTESOL (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). If you don’t have the qualifications to enter the programme directly, we offer a foundation year to prepare you for degree-level study. Your study will be further contextualised through experience, spending your third year at one of our partner universities in China.
