In your third year, Modern Languages students complete a year of study abroad. The period of residence abroad (PRA) is a fully integral part of all BA degrees involving French, German, Italian or Spanish as a principal subject, and one on which your academic progression depends. In addition to its considerable benefits to your language skills, the experience of living abroad is of immense value in terms of your broader intellectual, professional and personal development.
For specific information, please consult the Year Abroad page in the Department of Modern Languages as well as the dedicated PRA page.

If studying Latin, you will take the equivalent of one third-year unit in English and the equivalent of two third-year units of Latin, as specified by the Department of Classics. This is the final year of your course.
