Why study German?

Do you hope to one day work abroad or speak a language fluently? Are you interested in an academically challenging course with a strong practical application? If so, then studying a Modern Language like German to A-level could be for you.

The German course will develop your language skills, cultural and international understanding, and lifelong communication, analytical and research skills which can be applied at work or for leisure purposes. 

What can I do with German after A-Level?

Many students follow this course with a languages degree, which usually involves learning two languages alongside literature and/or linguistics. However, languages also complement any other subject, and are often combined with popular degree courses such as Law, Business, Marketing, History and Engineering. Language graduates are in high demand by employers in the UK and abroad.

Foreign Language Assistants will be available to develop your speaking and listening skills through individual or small group conversation. In addition, the department offers a range of opportunities in partnership with local universities and there will also be opportunities to spend time in Germany.
