i go to york's smaller biliingual campus: glendon campus, i guess you can get an iba at the keele campus too, but i'm not too suree about that.

anyways for glendon there are 3 main requirements:

1) you need to participate in an international exchange for either half a year or the full year (in your third year)

2) need to take 12 'international-oriented' credits (or in other words 2 full year courses)

3) you need to take 3 full year courses of french of at least the 2000 level (second year level)

* and you can get a trilingual ba, if you also take an additional 3 full year courses (2000 level and up) of a third language.

i'm pretty positive that it's the same requirements for keele campus too, seeing as it's the same university.

oh and to answer your question you can definitely start learning the language from scratch, it would probably just require a couple extrra courses to get to the advanced level

anyways hope that helped :)

that's awesome that ur considering glendon :)

yeah you can definitely take your third language at keele :)...and you can start from scratch with the language for sure...i'm taking spanish and i'm in the beginner's level and it would just mean you'd have to take the beginner's course in addition to the 3 required courses for the language requirement. so really it's probably just one extra course :)
