At Birmingham we are committed to training sophisticated linguists who can communicate effectively across cultures.

Your linguistic fluency is strengthened with a simultaneous understanding and appreciation of your target culture's literature, history, politics and society, and through total immersion on your third year abroad. This means that everything that you read, watch, listen to and discuss will blend both language and culture, equipping you to live and work as an engaged citizen of the world.

The Modern Languages Year Abroad

As part of your programme, you will enjoy a Year Abroad in your third year for full immersion into your target culture(s). The amount of countries you will visit reflects the amount of languages you are studying. We have university, teaching and work placements across Europe, Quebec and Latin America. You can also study in Russia, Japan and China.
