MML Part II List of Papers

Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics

 

MML Part II - List of Borrowed Papers

In their final year of study (Part II), MML students may follow certain courses offered by other Faculties. These are referred to as "borrowed papers". The list of papers available may vary from year to year, and in some cases, there may be limits on the numbers of students that can take the papers, or early deadlines for registration. Students are advised to contact the Faculties who "own" the papers for any specific information relating to them.

Students may choose up to two papers from the list of borrowed papers.
