Stage One

Students must study units amounting to 120 credits, including at least 100 at Level 1 or above. All units offered within the Department in Stage One are at Level 1.

Stage One provides a general introduction to the Social Sciences, qualifying students to choose quite freely from a wide variety of units in a number of disciplines in years II and III. It also enables students with a lower level of attainment in languages than students admitted to European Studies to experience intensive units in French, German or Spanish and to develop their knowledge and competence rather rapidly. Similarly overseas students will have an opportunity to consolidate their knowledge of, and facility in, English language (EFL). Students qualified to select EFL will be those whose first language is ot English and who have passed the appropriate English Language tests for entry to the University.

Stages Two and Three

In stages two and three all students will take units to a total of 240 credits, normally 120 credits in each Stage.

Of these 60 credits will be in their specialist language and 180 credits in the social sciences. Students will be required to take two compulsory units in the Social Sciences entitled Modern Europe I and Modern Europe II (20 credits each, a total of 40 credits). In addition they will choose 60 credits (equivalent to 6 single units) from the core units and 80 credits (equivalent to 8 single units) from the optional units listed below. Students who took EFL in Year I will not continue with this subject in years II and III. They will be required, instead, to take additional social science optional units in compensation.
