Course description

In this course you will investigate the sounds, words and grammar of the English language. You will discover where English comes from, how it developed over time, how it varies across the UK and further afield, and how it is used in different situations.

You will acquire the skills required for analytical language study alongside the means to apply those skills to the study of historical and present-day English. In addition, you will practise key transferable skills, such as essay writing and how to give a presentation.

Students may apply to spend one semester studying abroad during the second year of their degree. Exchange partners are offered through the Worldwide Exchange scheme. For more information about the Study Abroad Programme please consult the following: http://www.manchester.ac.uk/undergraduate/courses/studyabroad/

Gives students a thorough grounding in the language and culture of the Spanish-speaking world as well as the opportunity to learn Catalan.

Alongside their study of Spanish language, students explore a range of options in visual culture (including film), area-specific history, linguistics and literature.

Year 3 is spent in a Spanish-speaking country (on university exchange, work placement, teaching as an English assistant).

Open days

The University holds Open Days regularly (usually June, September and October) where you have the opportunity to tour the campus and find out more about the facilities and courses we offer.
