School of Modern Languages

With a long tradition at Newcastle, Modern Languages offers excellent research, teaching and student experience.


Fundamental to our teaching and research is the recognition that learning a foreign language provides a unique key to the understanding of other cultures and societies.

We offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes. Further opportunities to study languages alongside other subjects are available through Combined Honours.
