UCLan students, whose main degree programme allows it, can study a language as an elective. Your course leader or academic adviser will be able to advise whether you have this option for your course. The important thing to note with electives is that they do form part of your main programme of study, so there is NO additional payment. The year-long language elective is worth 20 credits.
The certificate option is available to UCLan students, UCLan staff and members of the public.

*Tuition Fees are per year unless otherwise stated.
For 2019/20 fees please refer to our fees page.
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.
