English & Languages

Our English and Language department offers a range of courses to allow you to develop your skills in communication and understanding of language. Our Language courses offer unlimited career prospects and transferable skills which appeal to universities and employers alike.

You’ll have access to thousands of books, journals and online texts and lectures in the library as well as easy contact with our knowledgeable team, excellent computing facilities and group quiet and silent study areas.

You will be encouraged and challenged with group discussion and written exercises to develop your creative response to the texts you are studying. There are regular visits to relevant lectures and performances to enrich your studies.

Modern Foreign Language students have the opportunity to take part in international visits and student exchanges through which you can practice your skills and develop relationships with students from other countries.

You take control of your own learning…they (South Downs College) were really helpful and always willing to do anything and go that extra step to help me get my grades.

Scarlette Tiller, A Level student

South Downs has been the best two years of my education. All my teachers were great and amazing, and I think they were the most helpful they could have been.

Megan Capaldi-Tallon, A Level student

The teaching has been really good, I’ve loved all of my teachers, they’ve all been really nice and supportive.
