About this course

Learn German - a major international language with over 100 million speakers worldwide - while increasing your knowledge of politics. You’ll study abroad for a year to get complete proficiency in German and also take modules on political systems and German history.

You'll have the opportunity to:

  • start German at a level that matches your spoken and written ability to ensure rapid progress
  • become fluent in a major international language and spend a year in a German-speaking country
  • develop the analytical, research and personal skills relevant to a range of careers and professions, including those for which German is a key requirement
  • explore international relations and political inquiry, theory and systems

You’ll have excellent resources to support you, including the Centre for Language Study which offers language and academic advising.

A special module in year 2 will make sure you’re ready for working and studying abroad in year 3.

In your final year you can specialise in an area of politics or German that suits your interests and combines well with what you’ve studied so far.
