Modern Languages Degree (Joint Major/Minor with Three Languages)

This undergraduate degree scheme allows you to study three languages chosen from Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish. We normally require you to have a good A-level in at least two of the languages. The third language can be studied from beginners' or post-GCSE level if you wish. Please note Chinese and Italian can only be taken as beginners' languages, and as minors.

If you are studying French, German and Spanish, you may choose to drop one of the three languages at the end of the second year. If you are taking Italian or Chinese as one of your three languages, you will do a 2-unit minor through the three years of Lancaster-based study.
