You can take a language at one of seven language stages, from absolute beginners to near-native speaker level in a range of languages. From stage 2 onwards, each stage is designed to help you revise and build on previous knowledge.
The stages are mapped onto a number of national qualifications as well as the Common European Framework which is recognised as a reference point around the world. You will need to do both A and B modules (that is, 2 modules) to complete a language stage.
For an overview of the language stages please click on Overview of Language Stages in useful downloads. A brief summary is also given below.
If you are not a Modern Languages student you are strongly advised to come and discuss your module choices with staff in Modern Languages although you may find the FAQs below helpful.
Note: Please consult with your home department as to any regulations concerning module options.
