This German degree at the University of Nottingham  allows you to narrow your focus or pursue a broad range of subjects according to your interests. If you have an A Level in German, you will continue to develop your language skills to degree level. If you are a beginner, you will follow an intensive language course designed to take you to degree level within four years.

In year three, you live the life and culture of Germany or Austria for yourself on your year abroad. This exciting experience develops your communication skills, builds your confidence and helps you stand out to future employers. You can teach English in a school, undertake a work placement or study at one of our partner universities. We also have a dedicated German-speaking year abroad officer who will be a point of contact and source of guidance during this time.


You will have a broad understanding of German culture, society, literature and history and you will have acquired a high level of expertise in spoken and written German. You will have specialist knowledge of the areas you chose to focus on and your international experience will demonstrate to employers that you are independent, adaptable and able to cope in challenging situations.
