During 3rd year, when permitted, at least 30 weeks of approved residence must be spent in relevant countries. The minimum period of residence in the country of either language is eight consecutive weeks. During sessions when this is not permitted, students will be offered an alternative means of engagement.
Final Assessment Weighting:
One unit of assessment is allocated to every 20 credits and constitutes one 20-credit paper. The following are the twelve 20-credit papers on which the classification of the degree is based. (Papers that for the purposes of degree classification acquire a weighting of 40 credits are, therefore, listed twice.)
1. Arabic 4
2. Arabic 4
3. Arabic Oral
4. Spanish 4 Honours Language Paper 1
5. Spanish 4 Honours Language Paper 2
6. Oral for Spanish
7. Year Abroad online language learning course - Spanish

12. Honours option course in IMES or Spanish
If students choose to complete their dissertation with Spanish, papers 8 and 9 will be calculated as a combined grade, as follows: 10% from MEL Dissertation Preparation and 90% from MEL Dissertation Completion. Credits cannot be awarded for the MEL Dissertation Preparation course unless the full 2 year course is completed.
