I am researching what university courses I might go onto do after my A-levels. I have come across a fairly new type of languages degree offered at several universities in the U.K. such as Lancaster, Manchester and Southampton.
**I am looking to find out if anyone has any direct experience of studying this kind of degree or if you know anything about them! (Whether you know someone else who has done it or you have looked into it yourself!)**
Any info is useful!!
Thank you so much!

A MLang is what is known as an 'undergraduate masters' degree. It is essential a normal BA degree but with a compulsory MA attached. I suspect universities are beginning to offer these because it means more money for them, but I can't think of a single good reason why a languages student should do one. You won't be able to get a postgraduate loan to do a proper master's degree if you do a MLang, so what's the point?

Don't know if you're still interested, but I am currently an MLang student and Lancaster, and this guy Snufkin doesn't know what he's talking about lol it is indeed a 'proper' Master's, you don't get a BA and you do 5 years' work in 4, meaning the universities get less money.
