University of Westminster

Course Introduction

The Department of Modern and Applied Languages at the University of Westminster offers an exciting range of opportunities to study European and non'European languages. It is based in the heart of a vibrant, multicultural city where more than 300 languages are spoken. Our courses are taught in small classes, and all of our lecturers are professional linguists or specialists in their academic discipline who have used their language and intercultural skills in the real world. There is a strong focus on applied language skills and we consider the study of culture integral to language learning; study abroad opportunities are available, as are work placements both in Britain and overseas. We aim to train competent linguists in modern languages ready to enter the workplace. You will be able to improve your employability through career management training, language'related employment and voluntary opportunities, and professional simulations which form part of the curriculum.
