|This course is intended for students on one of the Honours Programmes in 'Modern European Languages and Linguistics or English Language'.
Students are required to take courses in Linguistics or English Language at a University in the appropriate country while they are abroad during their third year of study. These courses must be approved by the Head of Linguistics and English Language or their representative. The marks for these courses will be converted to the Edinburgh marking scheme to provide a mark for this course.
The courses taken will vary depending on the set of courses available at the university at which the student is studying. The set of courses that a student can study to provide marks for this course will be discussed and agreed with the member of staff responsible for students abroad in LEL (the course organizer for this course).
