Welcome to the School of Modern Languages and Cultures (SMLC)
These pages are designed to provide you with the information you need to ensure a smooth integration into the activities of the School.
There will be a meeting for all Erasmus students based in SMLC on Monday 2nd October at 10:00-11:00 in LIB 2 (ground floor of library building). Briefing presentation from Induction meeting.
Study skills sessions for Erasmus students are mandatory. They take place each Wednesday at 12.00noon in term 1. Please see this poster for more information.
You may already have consulted the university module catalogue and made some initial provisional module choices. However, this catalogue includes many modules which are not running in 2017-18 academic year; and some new modules do not yet appear on this catalogue. This page is therefore designed to provide more up-to-date information.
Please note: registering a module on the university system is no guarantee that you can do a module; approval is needed first.
You are expected to take most of your modules from the School of Modern Languages and Cultures, as this is your base department. If you wish to take a module from French, German, Hispanic Studies, Italian, Language centre or SMLC, please look at the following list of modules:
If you wish to take a language module, this should be taken from the Language Centre or Italian Studies (i.e. a module code beginning LL or IT (Italian); not FR, GE, HP).
Please see: Language Centre modules ; or Italian language modules
Students who are not based in English department have to wait until week 2, and choose English modules on Monday 9th October. The list of modules here is indicative; they may not all be available.
It is useful if you indicate before your arrival if you wish to study a Linguistics module, although confirmation cannot take place before the second week of term. Students interested in second year Linguistics or Sociolinguistics modules should contact Cheryl Warner (C dot Warner dot 1 at warwick dot ac dot uk) and provide some details of relevant training/ Linguistics modules in their home institution.
It is useful if you indicate before your arrival if you wish to study a History module; in order to enquire about module availability you should contact Heather Pilbin (H dot S dot Pilbin at warwick dot ac dot uk) about this - see list of currently available modules here: Modules in History
Modules in other departments
If you wish to take a module (normally maximum one) from a department outside the Faculty of Arts, (e.g. Economics, PAIS, Warwick Business School, Law, IATL) you will have to contact the other department yourself to ascertain module availability.
