School of Humanities, Language and Global Studies
Recognised by industry professionals internationally, our courses deliver a strong emphasis on practical and vocational development which help students maximise their learning potential and provides our graduates with excellent employability skills. Our tutors are active members of Chartered Institute of Linguists and Registered Practitioners/ Fellows of the Higher Education Academy. The British Council and Trinity College are accrediting bodies for several of our courses.
Across the School, we have a great history in teaching our subjects: we are still leading the way with innovative courses and we started the first and only Institute of Korean Studies outside London and our Worldwise Learning Centre is an excellent resource that provides you with international experiences and support for your global aspirations.
Studying Languages and International Studies at UCLan opens a world of opportunities. We’ll help you develop excellent communication skills in your target language, and give you a thorough understanding of the wider social, cultural and political context of the regions where it is spoken. Combine this with related topics – in business, politics, social and cultural studies, or teaching English – and your career horizons are broadened considerably.
The period abroad available to all students studying a language is a life-changing experience, one in which you can immerse yourself in the language and culture of your chosen field of study – and we offer eight languages from across Europe and Asia, so there’s plenty of choice. As well as studying your chosen language, you are likely to take up a position within an international company, or work as a language tutor. We offer study or work abroad in China, France, Germany, Japan, Korea, Spain, and Russia and we are partnered with some of the most prestigious universities in these regions.
