About this course

With this degree, you’ll develop strong Spanish language skills and a comprehensive understanding of Hispanic culture, while exploring how language works through the study of linguistics. You’ll improve your fluency, cultural understanding and employability skills by 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, choose modules from other subject areas, focus on linguistics, or study Hispanic culture more closely.

Following our unique system of language development you’ll start at a level that matches your ability. This means 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 or Latin America. Through our innovative scheme in Mexico, developed in partnership with the Mexican Education Ministry, you could work as a Language Resources Assistant in a University.

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