    Hi, I'm in year 11 and will be thinking about applying for universities next year. I really want to study modern languages and although I am looking seriously at applying to Cambridge if I get the GCSE grades, I wondered if anyone could tell me what other good universities there are for languages. My A-Level choices for next year are Spanish, French, English Language and History, with AS Dance. I want to study Spanish and ab initio German, so obviously the course I would like mustn't need German A-Level. Thank you!!

    EDIT: I'm predicted 5 A*s, 6 As and 1 B

    Here's The Guardian's university league table which ranks universities for modern languages and linguistics. Cambridge is first and Oxford a close second, followed by Southampton, Leicester and Durham.

    I'm in Year 11 too! Good luck applying! x

    Cambridge is more literature & Oxford is more inclined to language skills.

    If you apply for a modern languages degree, you can take up to three languages and one of these can be from beginers level

    It's the other way around.

    League tables should be approached with a pinch of salt - things like a good location/interesting looking course should probably be higher priorities. E.g. what's the point of applying to Oxford for languages if you know you hate literature?
