About the courseAberystwyth is one of a handful of universities in the UK that offers students the opportunity to combine the study of three languages, two of which will not require prior knowledge. You can choose from among French, Italian, German and Spanish depending on the pathways you wish to take. In your third year you will undertake a Year Abroad, offering you the opportunity to live, and study or work, in the countries of your main language(s) of study. In the BA Modern Languages degree, you will not only gain practical knowledge of and fluency in three languages, but you will also learn to understand the position of these languages in a wider global context. We believe that our students should be fully immersed in the languages they study. Our close-knit international community encourages our students to use these languages in their daily lives, while we also offer opportunities for students to study abroad. On your Year Abroad, your time is usually split between two countries, to facilitate your total immersion in more than one language and culture. We are committed to offering you opportunities to develop your language skills, and to learn about, enjoy and embrace the cultures of the countries in which the languages you study are spoken. The Year Abroad will enable you to master the languages that you have chosen and will give you possibly the best year of your life. This course will also provide you with the opportunity to study a wide range of specialised modules in literature and culture, as well as language.
