Welcome to the School of Language, Literature, Music & Visual Culture course and degree pages. Some useful information has been made available for prospective:

Please feel welcome to explore the pages via the appropriate links.

We are delighted that you are considering to study in the School of Language, Literature, Music and Visual Culture and I can assure you that a warm welcome awaits you from staff and existing students here.

In our School, you can study for a degree in English, the Languages and Literature of Scotland, Language and Linguistics, Celtic & Anglo Saxon Studies, Gaelic, Film & Visual Culture, and Modern Languages (French, German, Hispanic Studies). In 2015, we welcomed Music to the School, building on collaborations which have developed over a number of years.  These programmes are enhanced by our cross-school interdisciplinary courses which are staffed by a wide range of inspiring teachers and I am sure that you will find courses from the rich variety available that match your individual interests.  Additionally, as part of Aberdeen’s Sustained Studies curriculum, the School offers a range of language courses, including Arabic, Mandarin and Swedish alongside French, German and Spanish.

If you have any questions about the courses you are interested in, your first point of call should be the School Office (Taylor Building A13). The staff there are always happy to answer queries; if they cannot give you an answer themselves, they will be able to pass you on to someone who can.

Very best wishes for the years of study ahead.

Professor Michelle MacLeod
Interim Head of School
