Almost zero support for studies. During covid no support and consideration was given to those who had their year abroad cancelled. Staff do not speak to you and take months to respond to emails and queries read more

This course is great! The unfortunate thing is that there isn't a great focus on actual language learning, we have a grammar class and an oral class, but we spend more time doing history on this course (which I absolutely hate!). If you are willing to learn about the culture and perhaps prioritise this over the language itself it is the perfect course for you. read more
