    Description

    This course is designed to combine the elements of language and management with scope for the study of a range of options and thereby offers a considerable degree of flexibility. Studying French and/or Spanish and the workings of business and management offers attractive prospects to students who plan to go out into the challenging and rewarding world of international commerce. With the continued growth of the European Community, opportunities are constantly increasing. Currently 60% of UK trade is now with non-English speaking countries and UK businesses lose millions every year because they cannot speak their customers’ languages. As a result, employees with advanced language skills are more valuable than ever and find correspondingly satisfying and well remunerated jobs.
    The 120-credit management strand of your degree is taught in UEA’s Norwich Business School. You will acquire a general and discerning knowledge of the purpose and job of management in business and organisations, insights into the practice of management and its environment, and the ability to use the inter-relationship of theory and practice to help solve the key management issues that arise in modern business and organisational life. You will appreciate the nature and impact of managerial decisions concerning a range of management disciplines. Teaching in the Norwich Business School takes advantage of innovatory thinking, based on the School’s internationally focussed research in business and management. In your First Year, you take two year-long modules: ‘Introduction to Business’, the topics covered include economics, financial and legal institutions, and types of business organisation; and ‘Introduction to Organisational Behaviour'. In your Second Year, you take the following two year-long modules: ‘Human Resource Management' and ‘Principles of Marketing’. In your Final Year, the two year-long modules are: 'Strategic Management’ and a choice of one from 'Behavioural Aspects of Marketing' and 'Business Skills for Managers'.

    Course Content

    In year 1 and 2 you study both French and Spanish to a high level. Each year, you have on average 8 contact-hours per week. The language teaching is closely related to the study of contemporary society in the countries where your Honours languages are spoken and your experience of learning language at UEA will include a combination of lectures, seminars and conversation classes. It will cover grammar, translation from and into French and/or Spanish, reading and listening comprehension, précis and paraphrase work, the study of different styles and registers, lexical exercises and oral work. You will also spend a significant proportion of your time working independently using subject-oriented teaching dossiers, radio, TV, films, transcripts, newspapers and online resources while keeping abreast of current affairs and cultural life at home and abroad. Our Language Centre has a digital language laboratory, a viewing and editing room, an interpreting suite for advanced language training, live satellite television broadcasts in French and Spanish, a large, multi-media self-access resources room with a wide range of French and Spanish DVDs and reference books, up-to-date computers linked to the internet, and translation software.
    You will acquire specific expertise in the traditional language skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening, as well as transferable skills such as time management, self-discipline and self-motivation, intercultural awareness, flexibility and resourcefulness, mediation skills, IT literacy and teamwork. Language and business come together in Year Two when you cover business-related topics in your core language course. In the case of French Honours language, the second year course prepares you for the 'Diplôme de Français des Affaires’, an international qualification offered by the Chambre de Commerce de Paris.
    If you take two Honours languages, then you are completely focused on compulsory modules and do not have the scope for other study, but if you would prefer a wider range of options then consider a single honours language programme.

    Subsidiary language

    Single Honours language programmes allow for the study of one year of Subsidiary language (starting from various levels). Subject to availability, the following languages may be studied from scratch: British Sign Language, Mandarin Chinese, French, German, Modern Greek, Italian, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish, and many of these can also be studied for from GCSE level; there are also post-A level subsidiary courses in some languages.

    The Third Strand

    Alongside the core language and management study, students taking either Single Honours language programme are able to choose from a wide range of modules which normally include: further management modules; other language-related modules such as Translation Issues in the Media, Subtitling and Dubbing, Translation and Adaptation, French Language in Action, or cultural modules such as Popular Culture in Latin America, France Through the Eye of the Lens, Spain Through the Eye of the Lens, An Introduction to Latin American Film, Aspects of the French Language, Language and Identity, Language and Gender or the addition of a Subsidiary language to your Honours language, as described above.

    Year Abroad

    Your Third Year is spent in a country where French or Spanish is spoken. For further information, please click on the Study Abroad tab.


    UK requirements for international applications

    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.
