About European Studies (Combined Languages) at University of Kent

Europe is geographically, linguistically and culturally diverse. It is also at the centre of many contemporary political debates. European Studies at Kent is based in the School of European Culture and Languages (SECL) and benefits from the interdisciplinary culture within the School. The Combined Languages programme gives you the opportunity to combine the study of two European languages to an advanced level, choosing from French, German, Italian and Spanish. In addition to your language modules, there is a wide range of options available to you covering the history, culture and politics of Europe and European nations.

French is the official language of France, and is spoken in Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Andorra, as well as being widely used outside Europe in countries such as Canada, Lebanon, and throughout numerous African countries. 

German is the most widely spoken native language in the Europe Union, not only is it the official language of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, but it is also spoken in Belgium, Luxembourg, and Liechtenstein. 

Italian is spoken in Italy, San Marino, areas of Switzerland and the Vatican City, as well as by communities located across Europe. 

Spanish is the official language of Spain, and widely spoken in Gibraltar and Andorra, and elsewhere in Europe. It is also a major language throughout South America. 

At Kent, we have native speakers of all these languages teaching on campus, and Canterbury is the closest UK university city to mainland Europe, with Eurostar terminals nearby at Ashford and Ebbsfleet.

You can also take our European Studies programme with a focus on just one of the languages mentioned above. For details, see:
