We are the oldest centre for German studies in the UK. Founded in 1828, we are now an interdisciplinary centre of excellence, offering in-depth study of German language and linguistics, literature, thought, history, politics, theory and film, rated as one of the best in the world.
“I chose German mostly for the variety of areas of study that it encapsulates. It offers a bit of everything; literature, culture, linguistics, film, history, and politics. I feel that it is giving me a good grounding for later life and the fact that I'm becoming proficient in a second language is an added bonus.
