Course description

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.

German

  • 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, both during their period of residence abroad and following graduation.
  • 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 in Berlin, Freiburg, Hamburg, Heidelberg, Leipzig, Basle and Innsbruck.
  • 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.

Spanish

  • The course gives students a thorough grounding in the language and culture of the Spanish-speaking world. Alongside their study of Spanish language, students explore a range of options in visual culture (including film), area-specific history, linguistics and literature.
  • The course immerses students in Spanish language and Hispanic culture. It also provides in-depth knowledge on Latin America and the opportunity to learn Catalan.
  • 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.
