Modern Languages at Leicester is one of the leading centres for the study of languages, translation, and cultures in the UK. We provide courses in the languages and cultures of the Francophone, Italian and Hispanic worlds and in Translation Studies, the latter via our Centre for Translation and Interpreting.

We have a vibrant study community with an outstanding record for student experience and student support. In the 2018 National Student Survey our Modern Languages degrees were ranked 2nd nationally for overall student satisfaction with an average score of 97.8% across our modern languages programmes (NSS 2018, overall satisfaction ranking in the subject area of European Languages and Area Studies). In its annual survey of UK universities, The Guardian's University Guide 2019 ranked Modern Languages at Leicester as 7th in the country.

Modern Languages at Leicester is part of the School of Arts.

"One of the many great things about studying Languages at Leicester is the inclusion of contemporary and historical cultural modules alongside the linguistic aspect of the course."
