    Language Modules

    Most Economics students are able to take a language module in their Second Year.

    NOTE: All Languages available through the Language Centre have an accelerated module, coded LL200. If you are choosing to take a language module at the beginner level in your second year, you must take the accelerated beginners module, which will be coded LL200. Students are not permitted to take a language module in their final year if they have not previously studied a language module as part of the Degree. This applies even if the language is at an advaned level.

    For more information about studying a language, please go to Language Modules for Economics Students.
