This is a core module for MArabic final year students. There are three distinctive parts to this module: i) you spend the first term in an accredited language institution in an Arabic country, ii) you undertake a short (two week) work placement in an Arabic country (either immediately following this period of language study or simultaneous with it) and iii) you spend the second term being taught intensively in Exeter. During your period of study abroad you will be supported by both colleagues in the study abroad institution and by IAIS colleagues, including the Module Convenor who will act as your named IAIS contact. There will be scheduled regular (usually at least fortnightly) contact with IAIS colleagues by e-mail and/or Skype.
