School of Humanities, Language and Global Studies

Our language, global studies and humanities programmes are all about building your knowledge of the language, culture, history, society and customs of the country of your chosen language, or indeed languages. They are also a great stepping stone for those that want to become teachers, and those that are interested in working within education.

Key features:

  • Immerse yourself in the language and culture of your chosen field of study.
  • Gain experience with study abroad, or international work placements.
  • Benefit from our unique blend of practical and vocational skills to help you maximise your learning potential and prospects for the future.
  • Learn from experiences and enthusiastic staff, many of whom are recognised nationally for their teaching.


Our Worldwise Learning Centre offers language support, training and professional development to students, members of staff, the public and the business community in the North West. It also provides a space in which to meet and make friends with speakers of different languages in a friendly environment.
