Coventry University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
The Languages for Global Communication BA (Hons) is designed to help enable graduates to become effective intercultural communicators who are able to bring a highly-desirable set of aptitudes to a range of employment roles and environments.
The course aims to address widely-identified future workforce skills needs in language, communicative and intercultural competencies. The course will offer students a chance to learn languages through a flexible and integrated subject and skills–based curriculum that is predominantly focused on international business contexts, intercultural studies, international relations and language learning theory.
Through studying this course, students will have the opportunity to learn to become proficient in one or two languages (to at least level C1 in the Common European Framework, CEFR), with the option to attain competency (B1 in CEFR) in another language.
This will be achieved through the options to study French, Spanish, Mandarin and Arabic (languages mentioned in no particular order) as these are among the key foreign languages rated as most useful to business by successive CBI / Pearson Education and Skills Surveys.
