This Modern Languages (Hons) degree at the University of Nottingham  gives you three options: teaching English in a School; studying at one of our partner universities; or working anywhere your chosen language is spoken. At Nottingham we also have a dedicated year abroad team to advise and support you.


You will graduate with a high level of expertise in both your chosen languages and be able to use them with confidence in professional and other contexts.

Your international experience will show employers that you are adaptable, independent and that you have acquired in-depth understanding of the language and cultures you have studied.

You’ll gain valuable international experience and transferable critical thinking skills by comparing and contrasting two regions and languages throughout your degree course.
