If you obtain an A at A-level or its equivalent in the language, you have the option of taking your Translation, Media and French degree in three years instead of four. In place of the year abroad, you spend a semester (the second semester in your second year) at a university in the country where the foreign language is spoken. Your work there is assessed and counts towards your degree. This option is popular with mature students who value the opportunity to extend their language competence beyond A-level in classes taught mostly in the relevant language in combination with the study of language related/cultural topics taught in English. Such students who have family commitments need to be clear that the semester abroad is a compulsory element.
Typical offers are ABB. Should you apply for one of these three-year programmes, be made a conditional offer, and subsequently obtain a B or its equivalent at A-level in the relevant language; it is likely that we will be able to make you a changed course offer for the four-year version of that programme. Conversely, if you apply for the four-year version, obtain an A in the language, and then decide that you would prefer to take the three-year variant, it is likely that we will be able to accommodate you in this course change. It is not possible to take two languages to Honours level on the three-year programme.

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules and regular (five-yearly) review of course programmes. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, there will normally be prior consultation of students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff or sabbatical leave. Where this is the case, the University will endeavour to inform students.
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
