    I want to study medicine but also have an interest in languages and would love to be able to improve my foreign language skills while at uni. I know Manchester have a "Medicine with European Studies" option but was just wondering if anyone knows of anything else? Like maybe modules where you can choose to study a language or even if you know a university offers free foreign language classes in the evening (so doesn't have to be part of my degree) or anything like that

    Thank you

    Most universities have a language centre where you can sign up to learn module(s) of a language

    Manchester's for medicine (languages taught)- http://www.languagecentre.manchester...ical-students/
    Languages Manchester offers - http://www.languagecentre.manchester...urses-for-all/

    I'm in Cardiff studying Medicine just now (would highly recommend by the way haha) and I know they run 'Languages for All' classes where you can choose from the likes of Spanish, French, Italian, Mandarin etc. I'm also pretty sure you can do like Japanese, Russian and Arabic. They're free and they run in the evenings. I haven't signed up for it this term as wanted to settle myself into the course before but I'm hoping to in the Spring term! I know lots of people doing it and they're really enjoying!
