    Is it possible for me to take 140 credits in my first year? There's a language module that interests me and would take me over the 120 limit (as I've already chosen a module worth 40 credits + 80 credits of compulsory modules)

    If it's like it was in my first year, you can take language courses as an outside, uncredited module. This may or may not incur a fee. Otherwise, you can take a first year language module in your second year should you wish to and have the opportunity then.

    You do an elective module in your first year worth 20 credits. Is there no language module that suits?

    I wouldn't overburden yourself in your first year. Use the free time to pursue other language projects and fun things.
