English & a Modern Language (Foundation Entry)

4 Years
September 2022
Campus Taught

In choosing to study a Modern Language alongside English, you’ll greatly enhance your communication skills and gain the experience necessary for a successful career.

Foundation Entry degree courses are ideal if you’ve got the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to directly join an honours programme. It’s a great stepping stone to a full degree.

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.

Why study with us

  • Literature in English at the University is 1st in the North West and 2nd in the UK for academic support - National Student Survey (NSS) 2019.
  • Our Modern Languages teachers speak more than 20 languages between them and many work as interpreters and translators alongside their teaching.
  • Explore major literary centres, such as Paris, and the relationship between literature and place.

  • Our team is made up of major researchers and we regularly invite in writers and guest speakers such as Caryl Phillips and Jacqueline Wilson.
  • Study abroad as part of your course – we have a scheme which gives you the opportunity to spend a semester or a full year abroad. We have exchange agreements with universities in many countries.

Module Overview

Course Delivery

Following the pandemic, we have found that some courses benefit from a blended learning and teaching approach. Therefore, the majority of your teaching will be face-to-face on campus aside from a small amount of online teaching where we have learnt it works best.


Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of our published course information. However, our programmes are subject to ongoing review and development. Changing circumstances may cause alteration to, or the cancellation of, courses. Changes may be necessary to comply with the requirements of accrediting bodies or revisions to subject benchmarks statements. As well as to keep courses updated and contemporary, or as a result of student feedback. We reserve the right to make variations if we consider such action to be necessary or in the best interests of students.
