Language and Global Studies

Language and Global Studies - School of Language and Global Studies

Studying languages and Global Studies at UCLan opens a world of opportunities. We’ll help you develop excellent communication skills in your target language, and give you a thorough understanding of the wider social, cultural and political context of the regions where it is spoken. An advanced command of one or more languages sets you apart from the crowd. Combine this with related topics - in business, politics, social and cultural studies, english language or english literature as well as teaching english - and your career horizons are broadened considerably. We also offer Foundation Entry routes to our degree courses, for students who don’t have the appropriate entry requirements to start an Honours Degree. Foundation Entry provides an excellent introduction, helping you to gain the knowledge, study skills and confidence to really succeed throughout the rest of your course. The additional study year is an integral part of your degree.

Do not underestimate the value of languages. It is a skill which sets you apart from the thousands of jobseekers worldwide. If you have the opportunity to move and work in a foreign country - do it.

LANGUAGE ACADEMY SOCIAL SPACE

I was lucky enough to be exposed to Chinese since the age of 14 and after my GCSEs I knew Chinese was for me. I attended a UCLan open day and was impressed with the language facilities and Chinese learning environment. The Confucius Institute and the wide range of activities it offers throughout the year won me over.
