Applied Languages are accredited undergraduate modules in French, German and Spanish (normally 40 credits per year) which contribute towards your degree.
You can include a language module in many undergraduate degrees at the University of Dundee, as part of the flexible nature of many of our degrees. You can start a new language from scratch or continue a language you've studied at Higher/A-level.
Here are some examples:
- Student studying MA Environmental Science who has A level French, can study French for a third of the year in first and second year
- Student studying BSc Biochemistry with no languages at SQA Higher, can study Spanish for a third of their first year, from scratch
For detailed on the Applied Language modules available, please visit the School of Humanities module webpages.
Students can choose to study a degree combined with one or two languages:
- School of Humanities students can opt for a Single or Joint Honours degree with one or two languages, combining English, History, Philosophy with French, German and/or Spanish
- Politics/International Relations with one or two languages

University of Dundee students can also take accredited Languages for All modules (which are worth 20 credits), in a range of languages, as part of their degree. If these are being taken for course credit, then there is no Languages for All course fee charged.
