Course summary

Course overview

  • Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. If you are looking for a course that gives you the ability to communicate freely in European and non-European languages, together with an understanding of cultural, political and economic contexts within foreign countries, the UCLan Modern Languages degree is not only a personally enriching experience but also develops your understanding of the recent history, contemporary society, culture and economy of the foreign countries. Two languages are combined; some languages can be studied from ab-initio level where no prior knowledge of the language is required, but you should have experience in at least one of your languages.
  • You can choose from a wide variety of languages, levels of entry, combinations and options within each language, which will allow you to tailor the course to your individual interests. All of our Modern Foreign Language courses emphasise the communicative properties of languages, and provide opportunities to develop knowledge of ‘area studies’ associated with your target languages. Each programme is very versatile and can lead to a broad range of exciting careers.
  • You will be taught about your chosen language and culture including music, current and past politics, history, film and literature. You will also study different types of texts, such as formal and informal language. As a student of Modern Languages, as well as your subject-specific proficiency, you will also develop important transferable skills which will help you long after you have completed your degree.
