As one of the world’s top universities, UCL excels across the humanities and social sciences. The School of European Languages, Culture & Society (SELCS) has an outstanding reputation for its teaching and research, with students taught by and researching alongside world-class academics.
Home to the UK’s first professors in Spanish, French, German, Italian and Dutch, SELCS brings together 11 languages, many different disciplines and a global approach to understanding languages and culture from the medieval period to the present.
SELCS offers students valuable skills for
employment at a time when language skills are strongly sought after by employers. These include the
ability to speak, understand and write in a foreign language, intercultural
understanding, translation and communication skills, and analytical rigour.
