All our students can learn languages in a number of ways, including as part of your degree, in evening
classes or online at no extra cost, or via Essex Modern Language Certificates.
All our undergraduate courses are offered as four-year options including the opportunity to spend a year abroad at a partner university around the world,
normally in your third year.
For our three-year BA courses, you can also spend a term studying abroad, usually during the autumn term of your third year, as well as
opting to transfer to a four-year course, including year abroad, normally after the Easter vacation in your first year.
Why study abroad?
As well as being a fantastic opportunity to experience a different country and its culture, study abroad enhances your employability. A period
of study abroad tells employers that you are mature, adaptable, organised, and independent.
You can also add a valuable dimension to your studies by engaging with the variety of perspectives on creative writing, drama, literature, and film,
offered at our partner institutions.
