What you'll learn on the course


Course programme

Spanish is spoken by more than 400 million people worldwide, so the global market has a huge demand for people with a knowledge of the language and the cultures of the Spanish speaking world. The Spanish programme at Aston is committed to equipping you with the tools, skills and knowledge necessary to operate effectively in this global, multilingual and multicultural world. We are devoted to the study of Spanish in context and therefore we consider the understanding of the diverse cultures and societies of the Spanish-speaking world to play an essential role in understanding the world in which we live. This means that along with near native proficiency in written and spoken Spanish, you will also graduate with an in-depth understanding of the issues that shape contemporary Hispanic cultures and societies.

Aston’s Spanish section is the first and only Cervantes Accredited Centre in the UK. The Spanish section will be hosting a range of Spanish Cultural Events sponsored by the Cervantes Institute.
