If you wish to work or you have already worked in communication oriented careers related to international business and management contexts, then this programme will prepare you for any career or field of postgraduate study requiring a mixture of business knowledge, high-level English and foreign language skills as well as cultural awareness, eg, public relations, marketing and advertising.

This year three direct entry degree is a unique opportunity for international students to study an exciting combination of business, culture and foreign languages and to graduate equipped with the skills to operate in a global environment or undertake postgraduate study.

You will also study another foreign language (of which you are not a native-speaker) at a high level, focusing on translation and/or interpreting, and have that language – French/German/Spanish/Arabic/Chinese or Japanese – named in your degree title. Students may also undertake a research methods module or a dissertation module depending on existing research experience.
