If you have a passion for language and communication then this is the degree for you. In choosing to study a Modern Language alongside English Language and Linguistics or English Literature you will greatly enhance your communication skills and gain the experience necessary for a successful career in a wide range of exciting professions. If the structure and usage of the English language fascinates you, our English Language and Linguistics pathway is for you. If you love exploring and analysing literary texts and their relationship to society and culture, opt for our English Literature route. Your Modern Language studies will focus on developing excellent verbal and written communication skills in your chosen language while exploring the society and culture of the countries where your language is spoken. You will have the opportunity to spend a period abroad in order to immerse yourself in that language and culture.

For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our Essential and Important Course Information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
