Languages and Culture UG Handbook (East European language + SELCS)

East European language and a SELCS language

This structure covers those degrees for students taking a SSEES language (excluding Russian) in conjunction with a SELCS (School of European Languages, Culture and Society) language (e.g. French and Polish, Bulgarian and French, etc). 

  • You must register for exactly 120 credits per year of study;
  • You must have taken and passed 90 credits of Level 6 modules by the end of the final year;
  • You are not permitted to take more than 150 credits of Level 4 modules over the course of your programme;
  • The Year Abroad must be passed

Students of Modern Languages must choose an interdepartmental module to the value of 15 credits in both Year 1 and Year 2. These are modules with codes beginning either ELCS or SEEE and any module may be taken in these groups. If you include the interdepartmental module in the SSEES 60 credits in one year you must include it in the SELCS 60 credits in the other year, or vice versa.
