Junior Sophister Year

The Junior Sophister year is spent at one or more Dutch (Groningen), Belgian (Gent or Leuven), German (Tübingen or Würzburg) universities linked to the department through an exchange programme, and at which German, Dutch and Swedish may be studied. Credits are carried forward and incorporated into the Moderatorship mark in the Senior Sophister year. Students also spend at least one month of their Moderatorship course in Sweden, say teaching English at one of the Swedish schools with which the Department has a special relationship.

Students agree a topic for their dissertation in the Trinity Term of their SF year and will research the materials for the dissertation during their year abroad.
