Through the GradDip in Spanish at the University of Dundee you will study the Spanish language and culture to gain an additional language teaching qualification, or simply for personal interest.


This GradDip in Spanish at the University of Dundee course builds your Spanish language skills. It is suitable if you wish to teach Spanish, or if you already have a school qualification in Spanish (such as a Higher or A-level) and are looking to further your skills for work or personal interest.

Using a combination of online tools, including web conferencing, and online immersion days, you will increase your skills in the Spanish language, including grammar and communication skills.

You will also gain a wider knowledge of Spanish culture and society, as well as themes such as Spanish literature, history, education, environment, and cinema.

The course is organised into multiple modules of approximately ten weeks duration. The choice of assessments and the project allow you to focus on your own specific interest areas.

There is no requirement for you to already have an undergraduate degree to study this course, as the modules you study and the credits you gain are not at Masters/Postgraduate level.


Studying Spanish can improve your career prospects whatever industry you work in. It is also useful for those of you who simply want advanced language skills.

This course is popular with secondary school language teachers, who are looking to add an extra language to their teaching abilities. It is also useful for teachers in primary schools, further and adult education settings, who wish to teach the language.
