The Integrated Professional Master in Languages (IPML) involves four years of full-time study in Manchester of two of the languages offered by the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures. Both languages are studied at an advanced level (post-A-level or equivalent) and the final year of study is taught and assessed at master's level. The student's time in Manchester is combined with a minimum of two compulsory periods of residence abroad. Depending on the pathway and the residence abroad options chosen by the student, the IPML may be completed as a four-, five- or six-year programme.
- Our German courses at Manchester give students a solid grounding in German language and the opportunity to explore in depth German culture, linguistics, history and literature. They equip students with the skills and expertise needed to thrive in German-speaking environments.
- Core German language courses at all levels of study are complemented by a variety of other subject areas, including linguistics that teaches you how the language works and a wide range of cultural and historical units that use German-language sources to improve your core language competence, as well as your wider knowledge of the German-speaking countries.
- The third year includes a period spent in a German-speaking country. You can choose a work placement, teach English in schools as part of the British Council's assistantship scheme or study at our prestigious partner institutions.
- We have specialists in an unusually wide range of German-related subjects, so that you can focus on subjects that really appeal to you in your final year of study.
- All our units include a focus on key transferable skills that help to prepare you for the world of work, as well as encouraging you to develop your academic talents.
- Students develop detailed knowledge of the language and culture of Italy from the medieval period to the present day.
- The range of units offered across all years of the programme combine the study of history, politics, literary, linguistic and visual culture of the peninsula and are taught by specialists in the fields.
- We offer a linguistics pathway through the programme for those interested in the history of the Italian language and its dialects.
- Assessment comprises methods including essays, commentaries, presentations and exams. Language courses, taught by native speakers, involve comprehension, translation, grammar and oral work.
- Part of the third year is spent abroad in Italy. Students can choose to complete work placements, teach English in schools through the British Council assistantship scheme, or take advantage of our variety of Erasmus exchanges.
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.
On this day you will find out more about the School and its resources, and meet members of academic and admissions staff who will be able to answer any questions you have.
Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2016 will be £9,000 per annum. Tuition fees for international students will be £15,500 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate fees pages.
