Why study Spanish?

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 Spanish to A-level could be for you.

The Spanish 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 Spanish 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.


Spanish Extras

Students will have access to our language laboratory offering individual language-learning

facilities. 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 Spain through a programme of trips e.g. Spanish immersion visit to Valencia, work

experience in Cantabria.
