With the Modern and Medieval Languages (MML) at the University of Cambridge students study two languages, one of which can be learnt from scratch (the exceptions being French and Latin, for which A Level/IB Higher Level standard is required). No matter what your proficiency when you arrive, you leave with near native-speaker competence in at least one of your languages. Most of our language classes are run by native speakers.
Our Faculty is one of the largest in the country. It consists of six departments, whose members are internationally renowned experts in their fields. In the Guardian University Guide 2016, Cambridge came top for modern languages and linguistics.
You study two languages for at least the first two years of the course. You can choose from:
Alternatively, you can combine any of these with either Classical Latin (if you’re taking it at A Level/IB Higher Level) or Classical Greek (which can be studied post-A Level or from scratch).
Fluency in a foreign language, an understanding of foreign cultures, analytical and research skills are all in great demand on the job market. Employers – even those who aren’t primarily interested in languages – particularly value the experience, independence and cross-cultural awareness our graduates have gained during their year abroad.
Most graduates use their languages in their work, and all build on the many skills developed during their degree. Our graduates find an array of different jobs open to them. Recent destinations include the BBC World Service, international law firms, UNICEF, and KPMG.
