At undergraduate level students can take German in combination with another subject for a Bachelor of Arts degree or a BA in European Studies. Students planning a career in business can take German as Minor for the BA in Finance. All undergraduate students are encouraged to spend a year living in a German-speaking country, and we have links with over twenty universities in Germany and Austria to facilitate this.
