Future opportunities

Courses in Modern Foreign Languages are extremely well-respected, hence their status as ‘Facilitating Subjects’ (subjects which universities particularly wish to see in prospective university applicants), and they therefore act as a superb springboard to higher education for courses such as Journalism, Law, Business, Drama, Film, and Speech Therapy as well as, of course, Languages. They also complement Medicine and Dentistry by demonstrating strong communication skills.

In recent years students studying in our department have gone on to a wide variety of Universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.               

Further information

We offer a wide range of enrichment opportunities to students. Out of college, these have included a visit to an Italian art museum, and Open Days at the universities of Oxford and Liverpool. In college, students organised the International Day of Languages. There were visiting graduates in all subjects.

Teachers in the Department run activities such as Debating, World Cinema club and Netball.
