Summary: Study Abroad Peer Advisors here to help!
We asked the Study Abroad Peer Advisors for tips on how to research your
study abroad options and here is what they told us...
Are my language skills sufficient to study abroad in a non English-speaking
country? If not can I attend a language course or register with the self-access
language centre in Nottingham?
Sarah, Study Abroad Peer Advisor:
In most cases it isn't necessary to speak a foreign language to study
at a partner university as many universities offer modules taught in
English. However if you are considering going to one of these
countries, perhaps you might wish to learn the language.
At the beginning of each term it's possible to sign up for language
modules in the language centre where many levels from beginner to
quite advanced are possible. If you have spare credits leftover for the semester/ year
you may be able to just add them. If not, it is also possible to do the language courses
and pay a fee. It's a good idea to sign up early as the modules are popular.
The self-access centre is also there to help assist language learning. It's free to join and
has TV, audio, films and written material in a variety of languages.
Am I only interested in studying in an English speaking country such as
Australia or Canada, or do I want to experience a more diverse culture, where
