Placement information

Entry to Spanish and French Courses & Programmes

The following table explains the streaming system for students entering the French and Spanish programmes or taking courses in those languages (for full information on how to register, consult the relevant Faculty Handbook and other literature provided).
The system is designed to place you at a level that suits your exposure thus far to the language in question. If you are in any doubt about the information provided, please contact the Modern Languages Coordinator.
Remember, you will have several weeks at the beginning of the semester during which your registration can be changed. If you feel you are in the wrong group, you should alert your Lecturer immediately so that we can assess whether you should move.
