School of Languages and Area Studies (SLAS)
Welcome to the School of Languages and Area Studies Undergraduate Courses page. From here you can access general information about the courses listed below by clicking on the relevant links.
We offer three and four year undergraduate degree programmes in languages and area studies to suit all your requirements. The four-year programmes require you to spend your third year abroad, either studying at one of our partner universities or on a work placement. We also have a range of degree programmes with languages that enable you to complete a degree in three years, although you will not reach the same level of competence in the foreign language on these courses as when you take the four-year programme.
There are also opportunities for bilingual students and for students with a high degree of fluency in the foreign language (for example, because they have lived in the country for a number of years) to be exempted from the year abroad and thus complete their language degree in three years rather than four, if they so wish. Please contact us for details.
