You’ll also enjoy extensive opportunities to sharpen your French and Spanish skills through our study abroad links with universities in France, Spain, Morocco, Switzerland, Canada or Latin America.

To help you find the perfect professional context for your Modern Languages study, you’ll combine the course with one of eight other subjects that range from International Politics and Management Studies to Secondary Education.
