European & Middle Eastern Languages

Undergraduates can choose to study one European language from the School of Modern Languages and one Middle Eastern Language (Arabic, Hebrew, Persian or Turkish).

This course is ideal for modern linguists who wish to continue to study a modern language at university but who also wish to broaden their horizons.

Students normally spend their second year abroad. For most students it will be strongly advisable to spend the bulk of this year following an approved formal course of language instruction in a Middle Eastern country appropriate to their language of study.

Prior knowledge of the European language is essential, but we anticipate that students will not have prior knowledge of their chosen Middle Eastern Language.

Candidates may seek advice from Dr Melchert or Dr Farrant at Pembroke.
