Slovak is a Western Slavonic language, largely mutually comprehensible with Czech and spoken by approximately five million people. This programme offers the opportunity to gain excellent language skills and a profound knowledge of Slovak literature, history and culture that will prepare you for a wide variety of careers in Europe.
In each year of your degree you will take a number of individual modules, normally valued at 0.5 or 1.0 credits, adding up to a total of 4.0 credits for the year. Modules are assessed in the academic year in which they are taken. The balance of compulsory and optional modules varies from programme to programme and year to year. A 1.0 credit is considered equivalent to 15 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
Your degree will train you to the highest level of proficiency in speaking, writing and understanding in your chosen languages, whether you begin with no prior knowledge or already have a good command of the language. As you progress through the degree, compulsory language modules are tailored to your existing knowledge, and you also take a compulsory literature module each year.
You are encouraged to develop and pursue your own interests. You will choose optional modules from within three pathways:
Language and Literature
Your third year is spent abroad. This will not only bring the language and culture you are studying to life, but also strengthen your resourcefulness and self-reliance. You will normally spend this year studying at a university in your chosen country, but alternatives, such as work placements, may be possible.
