UCL modern foreign language requirement

If you need to take a modern foreign language course in order to meet UCL’s Modern Foreign Language requirement then you must take one of the following three options during your first year at UCL:

  1. A 0.5 course unit in a modern foreign language as part of your programme diet.
  2. A 0 credit course unit in a modern foreign language (only if a credit bearing 0.5 course unit cannot be accommodated in your programme diet).
  3. An Evening Course in a modern foreign language taught by the CLIE over terms 1 and 2 (only if the schedule for a 0 credit course unit is incompatible with your programme timetable).


You must complete the course, which means you must meet UCL’s 70% attendance requirement.


0.5 course units: See Assessment.

0 credit course units:  You must complete the In-class Course Assessment and Project and are recommended to take the Oral Examination, but do not need to take the Reading and Writing Examination. See Assessment for details on these assessments.
