How you learn

All our courses are designed around a set of key principles based on engaging you with the world, collaborating with others, challenging you to think in new ways, and providing you with a supportive environment in which you can thrive.

During your study, you'll work and collaborate with fellow students — developing skills in key areas including foreign languages, the systems and acquisition of language, and approaches to teaching English to speakers of other languages. You'll learn how to apply this to your classroom practice. 

On top of your study of German, you'll also choose between French, Spanish, or Italian (the latter at beginner level only) as a secondary language. For the fifth and final year of your course you will complete at least 120 days of school-based experience, leading to QTS (Qualified Teacher Status), delivered by the School of Education.

You learn through

  • lectures, seminars and workshops
  • study abroad
  • work placements
  • presentations
  • essays
  • group work
  • teaching observations

There are opportunities to study abroad at one of our partner universities with the possibility of funding through the Erasmus programme.
