Learning a foreign language provides a unique key to understanding other cultures and societies.

Modern Languages has a long tradition at Newcastle. We have been repeatedly recognised for excellent research, teaching and student experience.

In the 2011 National Student Survey, we scored a 93% satisfaction rate across the School. Our teaching was awarded a top 10 place in the June 2012 Times Good University Guide.

We offer an exciting choice of degree programmes. Our teaching spans East Asian, French, German, Spanish and Latin American languages. We also offer translating and interpreting studies. Students can choose to study one, two or three languages at a time.

While languages are the cornerstone of what we teach, we believe it's also crucial to engage with the cultures associated with these languages. Our cultural context modules and year abroad programme give students the opportunity to develop valuable intercultural skills.

The combined honours programme offers students the chance to study languages alongside other subjects, such as business or linguistics.
