What degree programmes can I follow?
The broad range of expertise in the Hispanic Studies department means you can study not only Spanish but also Portuguese and Catalan.
You can choose to combine Hispanic Studies, or just the study of Spanish, with other languages offered in the school. You can also combine it with a subject from another department. These are known as dual degrees.
Studying with us gives you the chance to learn a new language - such as Catalan, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Polish or Czech - from scratch.
For all information about entry requirements, including our typical offer for single and dual honours courses, required subjects and the number of A levels required, please consult our online prospectus.
'And' and 'with' degrees
Be aware of the difference between `and´ and `with´ degrees.
Different levels of Spanish
We accept students with a good grade at A Level Spanish, as well as those who have little or no previous experience with the language. Depending on your level of Spanish you will follow one of two routes in your first year.
At Level 1, students with an A Level (or equivalent) study the Spanish language and culture in depth, and are given the essential contexts for future years of study. You will be introduced to the history, culture, and politics of Spain and Latin America.
Students without an A Level (or its equivalent) follow the Spanish Beginners' Course in the first year. In the second year you join the post A Level students for the content modules but have separate Spanish language classes. In the final year all students are taught together for both content and language modules.
More information: for detailed information about the different degrees listed on this page please consult the courses for Hispanic Studies in the online prospectus.
