All Arts and Sciences (BASc) students study a foreign language in the Core of their degree, from year 1 to their final year.
Students of all levels are welcome on this language option and you will not be penalised in your marks by starting from a lower level.
Courses begin from complete beginners 'ab initio' and
progress up to an Advanced level 7 – see the Language Centre pages for more details.
As well as studying one language in the Core of the Arts and Sciences degree, students with A levels in a foreign language may be eligible to study a second language and associated literature/cultural options in a UCL language department. Please check with us for further details.
Arts and Sciences regards achievement in a foreign language as central to the future generation of careers. Whether it is working with the growing economies of China, India, the Middle East or South America, working in Europe or interrelating to British nationals in an increasingly diverse society, skill in a foreign language is a key part of a university degree.
