Routes into Languages

Routes in Languages: promoting the take-up of languages and student mobility

The new Routes into Languages Programme in England is funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England and will run from August 2013 to July 2016. It will bring new ideas and partners to address the challenges and policy priorities of the next three years. It will adopt the following objectives:

1. Promote increased take-up in learning languages and associated cultures in secondary and higher education, including the learning of a diverse range of languages.

2. Promote increased take-up of work and study abroad in language degrees and in other subjects, especially encouraging students to spend a year abroad during their studies.

3. Promote greater national capacity in those areas of employment that require proficiency in languages and intercultural competence, including careers where cultural mediation is a key asset, as well as careers in translation, interpreting, teaching and research.

4. Promote raised aspirations and attainment of students in secondary school and higher education, thereby widening access to language study and helping to encourage a broader social profile of undergraduates studying languages (gender, ethnicity, socio-economic background, diversity of languages).

5. Promote greater collaboration between participating universities, schools and key stakeholders, including cooperation between academic communities with different identities and between academics and managers in widening participation and careers services.
