You will study one language at Advanced level (choose from French, Italian, or Spanish). Throughout the course you will divide your time equally between studying translation and interpreting in theory and in practice, and developing your language proficiency, whilst learning about the social, political, and cultural forces that have shaped that country.
At the end of your first year, you will spend three weeks in one of our fully-funded summer schools. This immersive experience includes language tuition, cultural and social activities and accommodation with a local family.
Developing your foreign language skills gives you a powerful advantage in business and opens up a wide and exciting range of careers. You will enjoy a rich culture of learning-led experience in a supportive and tailored learning environment, and you will be supported by our team of personal tutors to help you make the best of your time here.
You will also spend a year abroad where you can live as a student or work as a teaching assistant, with tutors on hand to help throughout the year. We have links with several universities in Belgium, France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Canada, and Latin America. Alternatively, you can take up an approved work placement.
Here in Modern Languages at Leicester we offer a rich and diverse learning experience, with great facilities, knowledgeable staff who are experts in their fields, and a unique chance to study abroad and build your international communication skills.
What's the difference?
This course, Modern Languages and Translation, focuses on translation and interpretation with half of the course being spent on translation and half on your chosen language (French, Italian or Spanish).
Alternatively, you can take Modern Languages with Translation which involves the study of two languages (chosen from French, Italian, Spanish; at least one language is studied at Advanced level, the other can be taken from Beginners level), with one third of the course being spent on the theory and practice of translation and interpretation.
