Cardiff School of European Languages, Translation and Politics (EUROP)

A Guide for Incoming Erasmus Students 2012/13

EUROP An Introduction

Cardiff School of European Languages, Translation and Politics (EUROP) has a number of agreements with partner universities abroad for the exchange of students on their year abroad. The information below is for incoming Erasmus students visiting Cardiff. EUROP consists of six different subject areas for undergraduate study: French, German, Hispanic Studies (Catalan and Spanish), Italian, Translation and Politics and offers a wide range of courses, both in arts and social sciences. We provide language modules as well as a variety of courses on culture, history, literature, politics, feminism, present-day society, commercial language, cinema etc. Politics has a very strong European orientation and is focused on the interaction of political theory, institutions and behaviour. BA Honours courses in language allow Cardiff students to study either one or two languages in depth, as well as to become familiar with the civilisation of those countries whose language they study not just the literature but the politics, history, society and wider culture also. All degree programmes have a modular structure with the academic year divided into two twelve week semesters. Each semester is followed by a period of examinations and/or assessments. You will need to enrol for 120 credits if visiting for the whole year, with at least 80 of these credits taken within the School. Student visiting for one semester are required to enrol for 60 credits, with at least 40 of these credits taken within the School. We look forward to welcoming you to the School.
