BA International

The BA (International) is a four-year version of the BA (Joint-Honours) course. Applications are made in Second Arts and students spend their third year studying in a third-level institution abroad or on an approved placement overseas. 


Students studying a Modern Language

Studying a modern language to degree level involves spending a period, normally an academic year, abroad in a country or region where the language is widely spoken.

You continue to study both of your degree subjects during the period abroad. Students registered for two languages are required to spend a minimum of twelve weeks in each of the countries/regions where the relevant languages are spoken. This usually consists of an academic year abroad arranged by the University in one language and a summer placement arranged by the student in the other relevant country/region.

Non-language students

Non-language students may also take a BA International by spending a year abroad in the US, China, Canada, or on European exchanges where programmes are available through English.
