Abbie asked:

I am looking at studying joint honours in French and Spanish, with Spanish being from beginners. What opportunities do you provide if I wanted to pick up another language along the way? For example I noticed that beginners Portuguese is an optional module within Spanish but is this avaiable for all students studying Spanish or just those on a single honours pathway? Thanks

Danielle replied:

Hi Abbie,

Great Question!

Please email me via modernlanguages@bham.ac.uk and I’ll be sure to get back to you on this.

Thanks!

Lolu asked:

Hello, I would like to study French and German (from Advanced Levels) but I am also curious to know whether there is an option to study some English Literature modules. Would that be possible?

Thanks for the question! Please could you email modernlanguages@bham.ac.uk and we’ll look into this for you?

Thanks very much!

Caitlin asked:

Is there a fee for joining societies?

Hannah, Admissions and Recruitment Coordinator replied:

Hi Caitlin! Some societies do charge a small membership fee (usually a few ££s) to cover running costs. At the start of each year there is a big societies fair when you can find all about about every society before you sign up!
