Students Without Borders

Students without Borders is a language course for Medicine, Dentistry and Healthcare students and those who are intercalating.

Students can learn French or Spanish with a focus on medical vocabulary. To study a Students without Borders module, you'll need to be a Medicine, Dentistry or healthcare student and have studied French or Spanish at GCSE level (equivalent to A2 on the CEFR). It runs over 16 weeks from October to March with a 90-minute class each week plus independent study. The classes take place on Wednesday or Thursday (dependant on the language) in the early evening to fit around your course.

Studying a language will enhance your CV and could help you to study for your elective overseas. Once you complete the module you'll receive a certificate of successful completion. 

 

Cost

Students without Borders is independent of your degree and is not included in the fees so there is a cost of £249. (If you don't complete the course, this has no negative impact on your degree programme.)
