    Description

    Our BA Modern Languages and English Language combines the study of one or two modern languages with a wide selection of English language or linguistics modules.

    The modern languages components of this course have a triple focus on developing language proficiency, cultural awareness and professional skills (not only translation skills, but also web and publishing skills, and film production and video-editing skills such as subtitling and voiceover). Our focus on skills helps you acquire a wide range of employability skills which enhance your career prospects.

    Your first, second and final years re spent at Essex, with your time split equally between studying English and studying your chosen modern language(s). In English, your first year is a foundation year which introduces you to linguistic techniques used to study language and language variation; in your second and final year, you are able to choose between a wide range of options which include modules like: Conversation and Social Interaction, Media and Institutional Talk, Varieties of English, Language and Sex, Black Englishes and Creoles, Lexical and Grammatical Change in the History of English.

    In modern languages, we offer modules in all five languages at all six different proficiency levels recognised in the Common European Framework, and you can start any of the languages you want to study at a range of different levels (from scratch, or post GCSE-level, or post AS-level, or post A-level). Our modern languages components also include a range of thematic modules on specific cultural themes (eg art, music, cinema, TV), as well as modules designed to develop professional and multimedia skills. Your third year is spent abroad experiencing, engaging with and integrating into another culture, either by a period of study at a partner institution offering the opportunity to operate in a different academic, linguistic and cultural environment, or by working as a language assistant and thereby acquiring valuable vocational experience of working abroad.

    Course Content

    The special characteristics of our course are flexibility and choice. In your first year you take two compulsory modules and two language options. During your second and final years you take two English language modules and two language modules. You spend your third year abroad. There is a great deal of choice for these optional modules due to the extensive range of modules offered by our departments.
    With a small number of exceptions, if you successfully complete the first year of your BA, then you are qualified to enter the second year of that course and a range of other courses: for example, if you take economics, politics, philosophy and sociology, then you have a choice of at least nine possible single or joint honours courses at the end of your first year. This means you can change your course, providing you have taken the appropriate pre-requisites and places are available.
    We operate a credit framework for our awards, which is based on principles widely used across the UK university sector. Each module has a credit rating attached and our standard three-year course consists of 360 credits (120 credits in your first year, and 240 credits across your second and final years).

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
