Date of entry

September 2020

Teaching

In Levels 1 and 2 teaching is initially through a combination of lectures and tutorials. These continue in Levels 3 and 4, supplemented by workshops and statistics sessions.

You will learn to study independently to broaden and deepen your understanding of the issues covered in the teaching.

There are industry guest lectures which you are encouraged to attend.

The Spanish modules in first and second year have four hours of tutorials each week. In third and fourth year this changes to two hours of language tutorial each week, plus 10 hours of lectures/seminars on Spanish film, culture, and society across the year.

In addition to language classes, you must attend regular film screenings or make appropriate alternative arrangements for viewing the films studied on the course.

Assessment

Assessments can be in the form of:

  • essays
  • problem-based exercises
  • case studies
  • presentations
  • group projects
  • exams.

All of these will provide the basis for your final grade.
