4 Years
September 2022
Campus Taught

Our Foundation Entry course in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and Modern Languages offers you a career-enhancing combination of English and a foreign language.

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.

Our programme is suitable for beginners or for those with an A-Level in their chosen language. You'll gain classroom teaching experience and have the opportunity to achieve an academic and internationally recognised professional qualification.

You’ll also learn cultural awareness and gain confidence in organisational, analytical and people skills. We’ll strengthen your existing knowledge of grammar and expression.

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.
