Our BA Modern Languages and English Language (including foundation year) is open to Home and EU students. It will be suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for the three-year version of this course and you want a programme that increases your subject knowledge as well as improves your academic skills. This course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of study. During your Year Zero, you study four academic subjects relevant to your chosen course as well as a compulsory academic skills module.Studying languages opens doors to new horizons. You study one or two modern languages with a selection of English language modules focusing on teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL). Our courses are unique because they have a triple focus on developing language proficiency, cultural awareness and professional skills – not only translation/interpreting skills, but also web and publishing skills, and film production and video-editing skills such as subtitling and voiceover. At the same time you obtain the skills to succeed as a language teacher.
**The course starting in January 2019 is currently open. Please go directly to UCAS Apply.**
Many of our courses offer a choice of optional modules to tailor your learning experience. More information about these can be found on the University of Essex website.

Essex was amazing! The campus was seriously beautiful, had many a lovely afternoon sat by the lake on campus trying to revise. There’s a great community feel here, everyone is very friendly and there are amazing support services at the Union. Be sure to pick the right accommodation – if you’re ready to party every night, stay at the Towers, where no-one ever sleeps! If you’re a quieter type, the South Courts are a bit more relaxed although there’s still parties to be had. My teachers were also amazing, and I had a great time on my course.

It's a great place because the campus is so good, but, Colchester itself is a bit grim and the shopping/nightlife could be a lot better! However, the SU are great and there is a real family feel about the place.

Highly recommend, look into your course so you fully understand what modules you are offered etc, joining societies and clubs is the best way to experience uni, you'll meet people from all walks of life and despite no one on my sports team studying a similar course to me, we all went to the library together during exam time just to support one another
