Year 3

Learning outcomes

On completion of the year students should have:
- enhanced their knowledge of Spanish law or the law of a Spanish-speaking Latin American country;
- practiced and developed their linguistic skills in Spanish, including legal Spanish (in oral and aural proficiency, in context-sensitive communication skills, and in written language skills);
- extended their knowledge of Spanish culture or the culture of a Spanish-speaking Latin American country and allowed them to place their study of Spanish law within that wider context;
- experienced the culture and legal culture of Spain or a Spanish-speaking Latin American country first hand and gained intercultural competence.

Transferable (key) skills

Students will have had the opportunity to:
- Develop skills of legal analysis, reasoning and writing appropriate within the Spanish legal system or the legal system of a Spanish speaking Latin American country;
- Learn to cope with different educational, learning and assessment styles;
- Adapt to a different environment and problem solve as part of that adaptation
- Reflect on cultural difference, and their own positioning with that difference
- Communicate effectively in Spanish, in both formal and informal registers


Achievement will be assessed by the host university, using their own assessment strategy. In addition, students will be assessed via a series of submitted reflections, which require them to consider issues of cultural, educational and legal difference.
