What is Languages?
In an increasingly globally and internationally connected world, a foreign language can really help you to stand out to potential employers.
There are two ways to study a language at Sunderland: through the Combined Subjects Scheme or through the University Language Scheme (ULS).
What is the Combined Subjects Scheme?
A Combined Subjects degree allows you to study one language plus another subject, or two languages. Languages available on the Combined Subjects Scheme:
You can choose to study a language at a range of levels: beginner (Spanish only), post-GCSE, post-AS or post-A Level. If you want to study two languages you must have previously studied at least one of the languages to A Level standard.
What is the University Language Scheme (ULS)?
The University Language Scheme is open to all students, staff and members of the public. As a degree student you can take a University Language Scheme module as one of your electives.
The University Language Scheme will count as credits towards your degree and it will appear on the transcript of results for your main programme. Staff and members of the public gain higher education credits.
Languages available in the University Language Scheme:
Please note that International students whose first language is not English must have their level of English assessed before they can take part in the University Language Scheme. The purpose of the assessment is so that the University can advise if you would benefit from English language classes.
