However, please note that applicants with Mandarin Chinese language ability above this level, including native speakers, would not be suitable for this course.

You will develop your linguistic skills by taking a language module in French and Mandarin each year you are at Warwick.Spanish is a world language with around 400 million speakers and is today one of the most important languages for commerce and cultural exchange. Warwick offers an innovative approach, combining the study of the Spanish language with the study of the diverse range of Hispanic cultures across Europe, the Caribbean, the Americas, and event aspects of Hispanic history in Africa and the Pacific.All our programmes are designed to enable you to study the Spanish language and Hispanic literatures and cultures to the highest level, while developing your communication, analytical and research skills.You will work closely with leading researchers whose specialisms range from contemporary Spain to Latin America, via Galicia, the Caribbean, the Atlantic and even the UK.

In your first year, you will follow a core Spanish language programme at either beginner or advanced level, and depending on your degree course either one or two core cultural modules.In your intermediate and final years, you will make an individual selection of modules. You can view the modules currently available for intermediate and final-year students on our website at www.warwick.ac.uk/hispanicmodules.

You will spend one year of your course abroad, which may involve a British Council teaching assistantship, an international work placement, or university study at one of our carefully chosen partner institutions in Spain, the Caribbean or Latin America.
