Our Year Abroad scheme offers you an unusually diverse set of choices for how you will spend the third year of your studies. The year is spent in Europe, Latin America, or China, at university (all language areas), teaching English, or completing an independent work placement in commerce or at a non-governmental organisation (NGO) in one or more countries where the target language is spoken (currently for Europe and Latin America). If you are studying two languages you will normally split the year between two countries. A reduced fee is payable for the year which you spend abroad and three-year degree programmes exist if you are keen to study Modern Languages but are unable, for good reason, to go abroad.
When abroad you will be able to immerse yourself in the language and culture of your destination while also enjoying the support from dedicated academic members of staff who will guide you through the practicalities of your Year Abroad, by offering pastoral support remotely, by visiting students abroad, and advising you with your chosen assessment. Spending a year abroad has huge personal and academic benefits, as well as giving you a head start in the graduate job market. With a Year Abroad in Languages, Cultures and Film at Liverpool, the world really is your oyster!
Please note: if you are studying a Modern Language alongside Law or Mathematics your Year Abroad offering may differ, so you should discuss this with the relevant department. For more information, please visit www.liverpool.ac.uk/modern-languages-and-cultures/study/year-abroad/.
