Studying a language at A level is more than just improving your holiday conversation skills. It is beneficial for improving job prospects in a global market and can open up opportunities across the world. With Spanish being one of the most dominant languages used across the Americas and the Caribbean, it is an asset for political careers, journalism, foreign affairs and travel.
Grade 5 in GCSE Spanish and four additional GCSEs, including grade 5 or above in English. Native speakers without a GCSE in Spanish will also be considered for interview.
Please see our Entry Requirements for more guidance.
We build your written, reading, speaking and listening skills through contemporary topics of social and cultural trends and issues. You will read, reflect and evaluate, then express your conclusions in an eloquent and precise way. This enables you to converse about complex family lives and political issues, including diverse societies, criminals and law.
Through studying Spanish, you will be exploring the many facets of different Spanish speaking nations including Mexico, Argentina, Cuba and Europe.
You will discover a variety of artistic cultures from the varying Spanish speaking countries, looking into music, film and literature, which will be included in an individual research project building on one of the themes studied throughout the course.
