Development opportunities within the Tripos system
The acquisition and use of a second language is inherent in some courses, either as an integral part of the course or as an option.
If your course includes a year abroad think ahead to what you can learn during that time in addition to language skills. When you graduate, will you be able to prove that you can operate confidently in a foreign country?
Extra-curricular development opportunities
Language skills are a strength to any graduate, whether in further research, employment, leisure or travel. Opportunities to develop your skills include:
- using the Language Centre's services and resources;
- joining foreign language societies or cultural societies;
- watching foreign films in their original languages.
