School of Modern Languages & Cultures

 School of Modern Languages & Cultures

The School of Modern Languages and Cultures consists of Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Hispanic Studies, Italian, Japanese, Russian, and the Centre for Foreign Language Study. Its community of academics, teachers and support staff aims to foster a world-class student experience in all its disciplines. Some 80 full-time members of staff are engaged in teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, offering expertise in a wide range of subjects, including language, literature, cultural history, cinema and visual culture, and translation; this is reflected also in an exciting range of taught degrees at postgraduate level. Sections within the School figure regularly in the top five in national league tables such as the Good University Guide and the Complete University Guide.

The School's research community is organised through a number of interdisciplinary Research Groups and is home to some 60 postgraduate students pursuing research degrees.

The Centre for Foreign Language Study offers non-specialist learners, including students, staff and members of the public, the opportunity to learn a range of languages from beginners to more advanced levels.
