University of Westminster, London has opted into the TEF and received a Bronze award.
At Westminster we train competent linguists in modern languages ready to enter graduate employment. We place particular emphasis on employability and the contemporary cultural context, and offer high-quality teaching in all language skills. This course will enable you to achieve a good or high level of linguistic competence in Arabic in all four skill areas (reading, writing, listening and speaking), enhance your skills in using English, and develop your knowledge and understanding of literary and cultural studies. You will be able to function in different cultural situations and acquire the qualities and skills of a humanities graduate. You will also gain the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development. Our Arabic courses are only available to beginner or 'false beginner' entrants – false beginners are students who may be able to read the Arabic script, and/or have the equivalent to one or two years' part-time study. Please note that we may need to test you to determine your entry point. In English Literature you will have the opportunity to examine literary and non-literary works of all periods from Shakespeare to the present day, taking in a wide range of authors and themes, with a full and balanced coverage of dramatic, poetic and prose works. You will consider the wider historical and political contexts in which cultural and literary works have been produced and received, and relate the works both to intellectual history and to work in other arts and media, such as architecture and the visual arts. You will also have the opportunity to consider the theoretical tools of textual, cultural and literary analysis in detail.
