Linguastars Residential

30th June - 1st July

Experience what it’s like to study languages at university on our free residential for Year 12 students.

You will take part in engaging and interactive workshops designed to give you a taster of studying languages at university, and explore the career opportunities available to graduates. There will be the opportunity to discover new languages and explore language related workshops such as film studies, linguistics and translation studies as well as meet our current languages students, stay overnight in our student accommodation and join in with social activities that give you a rounded experience of university life.

As part of the residential you can choose to study one of two routes:

  • Take workshops in French, German or Spanish if you’re already studying these languages
  • Choose to study a beginners language such as Italian, Portuguese, Latin or Arabic. You don’t need to have previous experience of studying the beginners languages to choose this route
