About this course

With this BA Spanish and Linguistics 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.

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

We have a range of links abroad, including our innovative scheme in Mexico, developed in partnership with the Mexican Education Ministry.

During this year you'll be tasked with the creation of your Period Abroad Portfolio (PAP).

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.
