Bangor Business School
In French, German, Italian and Spanish, there are separate entry routes for students who have A-level or equivalent in the language subject and those who do not.
This integrated course allows you to combine a broad programme of study in Business Studies (67%) with a language specialism (33%).
Degrees such as this that involves one-third language study and two-thirds at Bangor Business School are 3-year courses based entirely in Bangor.
It is also possible to study French, German or Spanish WITH Business Studies or Marketing (67% language, 33% business subject) which are 4-year programmes, with year 3 spent abroad. See the Modern Languages section for UCAS codes.
Many Business School graduates pursue careers in areas such as accountancy, banking, investment, insurance, risk management, marketing, human resource management and retail management. Many Modern Language graduates have gone into teaching or translating, but just as many have embarked on successful careers in the civil service, business and commerce, industry and the media.
