Undergraduate courses starting in 2018

Languages are passports to life enabling you to become a global citizen. You’ll foster communication and broaden your knowledge of cultures and perspectives.

The study of a foreign language enables you to pursue many job opportunities overseas. You will be able to read, write, listen and speak proficiently in the language of your chosen country.

Our languages include French, German, Spanish, and ab initio (for newcomers) Italian. All our language courses will enable you to achieve fluency in your chosen languages. We believe that your learning will be at its best through total immersion in your chosen language. For this reason, we teach almost all our courses and units in the target language and you will spend your third year abroad.

We have expertise on the present issues facing Europe and areas beyond such as Latin America. You will study the culture and explore the history and values of your countries of study.

“We always have discussions in the language in our seminars about what’s going on at the moment. We’re very much immersed in what’s going on at the time as well as the language.”
