About this course

You’ll develop strong Spanish language skills and have the option to take Portuguese (or another language) alongside. You’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of Latin America. You’ll build your fluency, cultural understanding and employability skills spending a year living and working abroad.

You’ll have the freedom to tailor your degree to areas that interest you. You could, for instance, take another language, take modules from other subject areas, or explore Hispanic culture and history in more depth.

Following our unique system of language development you’ll start at a level that matches your ability. This means you can take another language, for example Portuguese, from scratch and we can personalise your learning so you make the best progress.

In your year abroad you can choose to:

  • work as an English assistant in a school

  • study at a university

  • take a work placement

You could choose to go to Spain, Portugal or Latin America - we have links in Chile, Colombia, Brazil and Mexico.

This course has a strong focus on employability. You’ll have the option to take practical modules looking at teaching, you’ll be able to take advantage of our vacation work placement schemes and you’ll develop a wide range of transferable skills.
