Future opportunities

Spanish can be used as an entry qualification to a wide variety of courses at University or College, as a basis for a Modern Language course or as an element of a Joint or Combined course. Combinations have been as diverse as Spanish and Linguistics, Spanish and Psychology and Spanish and Business Studies. You are invited to take a look on and view the possibilities.

Language skills can take you a long way! Many Higher Education institutions now offer students the opportunity to continue their Modern Languages study regardless of degree choice. Students wishing to go into Primary Education or Medicine are strongly recommended to consider including foreign language study in their plans.
