This report has been written for the University Council of Modern Languages (UCML) to present the results of the Language Provision in UK Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) Departments 2019 Survey supported by the Language Acts and Worldmaking project. As in 2018, the focus is on language modules in MFL departments and models of collaboration between MFL and institution-wide language provision (IWLP) units, with additional questions in 2019 about Brexit preparedness, the existence of language strategies and collaboration with Routes into Languages within institutions. Some of the findings point to a further decline in the number of universities offering MFL programmes (from 69 to 62), greater MFL-IWLP collaboration and a downgrading trend affecting MFL departments.
[Survey report will be uploaded shortly]
