Chinese Undergraduate Degrees A-Z


Flexible programme

Lancaster has a flexible approach to undergraduate study. Many degree schemes incorporate a minor in other subjects to complement your major subject. Many students choose to study Chinese, French, German, Italian or Spanish in the first year of their studies, either at intensive or advanced level. Our courses support you to develop language skills and also to appreciate the nature and diversity of different cultures.

International Placement Year

The International Placement Year is compulsory for students taking Chinese, French, German or Spanish at major level. Please note that there is no placement year for Italian. It gives students the opportunity to improve your language proficiency, broaden your cultural knowledge and gain transferable skills that are much valued by employers.
