Students are not generally permitted to take a Beginners’ language module in the third year unless they have studied the other language in their second year. If you consider you have good academic reasons to do so, you need to discuss this with Clive Letchford and gain approval from the Head of Dept. Students must achieve 70% or higher in a language module to progress to the next level.

External Modules at Honours Level

Second and third year students may take one 30-CAT module or two 15-CAT modules from outside the department (eg from IATL or another academic dept) in place of an optional module. You should discuss this first of all with your Personal Tutor, & then seek advice from the relevant module tutor in order to check that you have the prerequisite knowledge before then seeking formal permission from the Director of Ug Studies or Head of Dept in order to register for the external module(s). You should be aware that modules from the Business School, for example, may involve a substantial maths component.

Students wishing to take a level one option at Honours level should bear in mind that only one such module is permitted in the eight modules taken in the second and third years.

Students are permitted to take language modules taught at the University's Language Centre (located on the ground floor of Humanities). However, students are not permitted to take Language Centre modules whose levels are lower than university-level study. These can instead be studied in your spare time in every year of study. For your degree, students can take a language at the Language Centre at Level 5 Advanced 1 in their second year; and Level 6 Advanced 2 in their third year. Students who want to study a Language Centre module as part of their degree need to speak to their personal tutor, in order to obtain approval from the Director of Undergraduate Studies. Students may, however, also investigate academic modules in Italian, German or Spanish within the School for Modern Languages and Cultures.
