Language Immersion Programme
As part of their language training, during the summer of their first year, students travel to a relevant country to take part in a four-week intensive language immersion programme.
This important feature of the MA exposes students to cultures, communities and ways of life different from their own. It helps them to experience language in its social and lived dimensions while furthering their understanding of diversity and pluralism.
In previous years, students learning Arabic have gone to Tunisia (Institut Bourguiba Pour les Langues Vivantes) and those learning Farsi to Iran. Classes are held in Arabic or Farsi on subject matter as diverse as cooking and music.
