The specification is designed to inspire students, enabling them to use the Language independently and encouraging a deeper understanding of the language and culture.

You’ll study culturally sensitive and authentic texts and our general Topic Areas (GTA) focus on Germany and the wider German language speaking world exploring cultural, social, political, moral, intellectual, technological issues and trends.

On completion, you could go on to pursue a university degree in German or a related subject. Our approach will also suit students who see language as a skill to enhance career or travel prospects.
