- The course shows how the theory of communication can be applied to everyday life. You'll be looking at:
- language and its part in communication at work, rest and play;
- how people learn and teach languages;
- how different languages 'see' the world; and
- how people use language as a badge of identity.
- The teaching quality was rated as 'excellent' in the last national assessment.
- The campus facilities include:
- state-of-the-art digital computer labs;
- linguistic software;
- excellent computing resources; and
- a comprehensive library.
- A personal tutor and a strong educational support system help you reach your full potential.
- A choice of teaching and assessment methods mean you can select those which suit your skills best.
- The wide choice of career paths available to graduates makes this an ideal course if you want to keep your job options open.
The part-time course is half the workload of the full-time course, taking six years rather than three to complete.
You meet with a tutor to discuss your time commitments before your course begins. The course leaders then try to let you know the timetable of lectures and seminar groups as soon as possible. During an average week you will need to allow twelve hours for lectures and seminars, plus a further six to nine hours for independent study, but this does vary.
The course is flexible so you can switch to full-time at Levels 2 or 3 if you wish.
