  • Objectives
    This three-year programme explores the role of language in the contemporary world. The degree focuses mainly on language in social contexts. We start by looking at the nuts and bolts of modern English - its sounds, grammar and meaning. You then learn to analyse critically the use of English in the modern world and to apply this knowledge to the solution of real-world problems: at work, in relationships, in the media, in education, in politics. You examine the growth of English as an international language, current developments in English language teaching and learning, and the role of languages in creating social and individual identity.
  • Entry requirements
    There are different entry qualifications for each programme. Some programmes require you to have a certain amount of knowledge in a subject before you begin the degree programme – this is called a ‘subject requirement’. Other programmes do not have any specific subject requirements. All programmes will, however, expect you to have reached a certain standard in your education and will ask you to achieve certain grades in your examinations. Most programmes have a standard offer so that you know in advance what you are likely to need. Please note that even if you have the minimum entry qualifications, you are not necessarily guaranteed a place on the degree programme.
