- For all degrees which involve French OR German a minimum of grade B at A level in French and/or German is required.
- For those wishing to study French AND German a minimum of grade B at A level will be required in both languages.
- For degrees with Spanish and our other degrees, a minimum of grade B at A level in a Modern Foreign Language is required.
- For two-language degrees (including those with Arabic), an A level is required in at least ONE of the two languages. You may NOT take two languages at beginner’s level. For three-language degrees grade A at A level will be required in two of the three languages.
- For programmes combining a language with another subject (eg, History, Maths, English, etc.) you may study the language either at post-A level or at beginner’s level. In the case of beginners, evidence of language aptitude will be required (eg, an applicant holding an A level in French might be admitted onto a programme in Politics and Spanish where Spanish is studied from scratch). For application purposes, entrants holding a GCSE will be classed as beginners.
We are only able to guarantee a place on the relevant language programme(s) if this information is included on your UCAS form. However, we understand that you may change your mind about the languages you want to continue with or take up, so if you wish to change the choice of language(s) given on your UCAS application at any stage please contact either our Admissions Office who will be able to confirm whether or not you are eligible for consideration for a different combination of languages. If you do wish to be considered for an alternative language combination please make your request as early as possible, as capacity and planning constraints may limit our ability to allow late changes to language combinations.
