Undergraduate study

The Department of German at Queen Mary is recognised for its excellence in teaching and research, and its strong student support. Most of our classes are small-sized and are based on discussions and high student participation. To enhance the teaching and learning experience, we encourage the use of the latest technology, with which our teaching rooms and language labs are equipped.

Language proficiency paths

As a student at Queen Mary, you can study German at four different levels depending on your proficiency. In addition to our regular programme for post A-level students (Post A-Level Path), we offer intensive language courses for students without any previous knowledge of German (Ab-Initio Path) and for those who have only a GCSE in German (Intensive Path). We also developed special language provision tailored to the needs of near-native and native speakers of German.

Modules in Linguistics, Literature and Culture Studies

We are proud to offer a great range of modules which reflect the diversity of research interests of our staff. We believe that studying the German language through its respective literatures (including Austrian and Swiss) and thought deepens and refines our understanding of both and contributes to the meaningful mediation between cultures. For those interested in the study of linguistics and its practical application, we offer a linguistic path including a range of modules on the study of the German language in its historical, cultural, social and teaching context. In addition, students can choose from a range of options focusing on contemporary cultural, social, political and business-related aspects of German-speaking countries.
