German with Spanish

This degree enables you to take a full range of German modules and to either start learning Spanish from beginner’s level or continue your studies from where you left off at GCSE, AS or A level. The Spanish courses enable you to graduate with excellent standards of proficiency.

You will spend your year abroad either at a university or working as a language assistant in a country where German is spoken. We encourage and support students who then go on to spend a period of residence in Spain.
