Languages at SSEES
Learning a new language will develop your communication skills, enhance your socio-cultural understanding and improve your career prospects. SSEES offers an incredible range of Eastern European languages spoken by half a billion people. Why not study one?
"Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for travelling. It will make you smarter and more decisive" (Merritt, 2013).
Beginners Language Courses
All UCL students without a GCSE in a foreign language at Grade C or above (or other accredited Level 2 foreign language qualification) are required to undertake at least a 0.5 course unit in a foreign language as part of their degree programme.
SSEES offers 0.5 unit courses to meet these needs. For further information contact Riitta Valijvari.
