Advice to applicants
To be successful on and to enjoy this course, you will need certain skills and personal qualities. You will need linguistic skills, in order to cope with the language side of the degree. You will need intellectual curiosity, in order to make the most of the diverse range of course units available to you. You will need an interest in immersing yourself in another culture, in order to help you meet the challenges of the year abroad. Finally, you will need dedication and enthusiasm: this is a rigorous degree programme, but committed students have the potential to derive great personal, practical and professional dividends from it.
