Language objection

Because of the reading knowledge requirement, many students have experienced considerable difficulty in completing their degrees, says Education Officer Caroline McGrath.

A petition is being circulated to ask for immediate reexamination of the compulsory foreign language requirement for B.A. and postgraduate science degrees.

Case histories are also being called for, Caroline says.

If you have a grievance or any comments on the present situation, please write them out and hand them in to the Students' Association office.

The following information is also required in any grievances :

  • 1. Experience of learning a foreign language at school.
  • 2. Previous University academic record, under the following headings: Year; Year at university; Subjects; Final grades.
  • 3. Comments on the relevance of a foreign language in your degree.

Please sign your name, and indicate if you do not wish it published.
