I tried to send an email yesterday, but the computer had a mind of it own and sent nonsense. My son is away hence we can't make the open day and I am helping him finalise his Uni choices. He is interested in International Business with Spanish. Loughborough looks a great option, except that there is no detail at all given about the Spanish part; what is covered, what proportion of the degree. He wants to learn business context Spanish, rather than be discussing the finer points of literature.
Can you let me know how we can find out about this? Also, Loughborough doesn't seem to have a spanish department- so how is it taught.
Thanks for any help you can give- even an email address of the right person would be helpful
I've had a response from the Business School - please see below. If you would like the course structure e-mailed to you, please PM me your e-mail address.
International Business students can choose to study either French, German or Spanish as part of the course if they have previously studied the language at AS Level or above. This would be studied as an optional module as part of the course.
The University Wide Language Programme runs language modules at various levels, and on commencement of the course the student is assessed to make sure they are studying at the appropriate level. For example a student who has studied A Level Spanish will start on Level 7.
The module is taught by our Politics, History and International Relations department. For details about the contents of the module, you can contact the Language Centre: 01509 222977 / firstname.lastname@example.org
