Comments about BA German & International Relations - At the institution - Reading - Berkshire
This course will provide you with an in depth understanding both of the politics and culture of Germany and of the theory and practice of international relations. You will also acquire a high level of competence in German language, and you will spend the third year studying or working in Germany or Austria.
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.
