Modern Languages

Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study at Swansea University - 'Welsh University of the Year 2017' (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017). Modern Languages at Swansea encompasses Arabic, French, German and Hispanic Studies with research strengths in written culture from the medieval period to the present day, including contemporary European cinema. We also have language expertise in Italian and Mandarin Chinese, but, depending on your choice of topic, advanced knowledge of a language is not an entry requirement. Some comparative projects in both literature and film can be researched in English translation.

Assessment methods

A thesis of not more than 90,000 words, which contributes significantly to the subject area and demonstrates original research. This is followed by an oral examination of the thesis (viva) by two examiners who are not your supervisors, one of whom is external to the University.
