If you are looking for a course that gives you the ability to communicate freely in Spanish and Korean, together with an understanding of cultural, political and economic contexts within foreign countries, the UCLan Modern Languages degree is not only a personally enriching experience but also develops your understanding of the recent history, contemporary society, culture and economy of the foreign countries.
In this combination, Spanish is only available post A level, and Korean ab initio.
You could move on to a variety of successful careers in international business, consultancy, translation/interpreting, or worldwide teaching. Our graduates are enjoying careers in many international organisations including Merill Lynch, Reuters and diplomatic embassies.
If studied over four years, your third year is normally spent abroad in the country/countries of the main target language on a work placement, a study placement at a partner institution or as a Foreign Language Assistant in a school. This will enable you to greatly enhance your language skills and improve your confidence when communicating in the language in the international environment.

Preston’s such a lovely student city – there’s something on each night and the prices are amazing, it’s really geared toward students. Warehouse and The Ship Inn saw the most of my nights out in town. It’s not really a bustling metropolis, but less distractions = more work done! And if you’re wanting a huge night, Liverpool’s about half an hour on the train and is amazing. My course is great, with fascinating, empathetic teachers who really support and encourage us, and the facilities are top notch. The Student Union is also incredibly supportive, and they always have time for us.

Honestly I could not recommend UCLan anymore than I am. I wholeheartedly believe that the lecturers are there to help you learn and grow as a person rather to just keep up rankings. You are made to feel like an individual and not just another student.
I think uclan is a really good choice of uni for a take of students. They allow room for independent learning and have an incredible wealth of recourses while also offering the help anyone may need and hubs for information whenever you might need it.
