    What is it like to study languages at uni. I currently do A-Level, Maths, Economics and French and want to to French, Arabic and German at uni. I got an A* in GCSE German and regret not continuing it for A-Level. I understand you must do literature modules in a language degree. How is that? I don't like literature; is it similar to GCSE English Lit?

    Hey

    I'm currently in my 3rd year of a language degree at Sheffield so I thought I'd help you.

    Which modules you have to take depend entirely on which exact degree programme you take and at which uni. Most of the time, your only compulsory modules will be language modules, whereas things like literature are part of your optional modules, so you don't have to take them if you don't want to. I'm not a fan of literature either and I've managed to avoid it for the entirety of my degree

    https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/prospect...do?id=T9002016 This is the Modern Languages course at Sheffield, so you get a very wide range of possible modules, so it's perfectly possible to avoid topics you don't like
