Course Introduction

The four-year BA Dutch and Polish is a joint honours programme split equally between your two languages. You will take modules not only in language (speaking, listening, reading, writing and translation) but also in cultural topics including literature, history, film, linguistics, politics and other relevant field designed to complement your language learning. With a wide variety of modules on offer, you will be able to tailor your modern languages degree to your areas of interest.

You will spend a Year Abroad in the third year, split between two countries where your languages are spoken.

UCL houses the oldest centre for Dutch Studies with the most comprehensive Dutch Library in the English-speaking world. You will gain near native understanding and translation skills in Dutch as part of your degree, and you will also learn about historical, cultural and political developments across the Low Countries as a whole. You will study in a small, friendly department, with an excellent staff-student ratio unusual in higher education nowadays.

Data from the 2011 census reveals that over half a million people in England and Wales speak Polish. This makes Polish England's second language! Poland, with nearly 39 million citizens, is an increasingly important actor on the world economic and political stage. Studying Polish at SSEES (UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies) offers the opportunity to gain excellent language skills and a profound knowledge of Polish literature, history and culture that will prepare you for a wide variety of careers in Europe.

UCL Is ranked 3rd in the UK for Modern Languages in the 2018 QS World Rankings and offers outstanding opportunities to language students and graduates.
