Project Description:

The ProblemSOLVE project was a Leonardo da Vinci student mobility project. ProblemSOLVE consists of web-based language materials designed to assist learners before and during their mobility programme in a vocational setting. The project generated web-based language materials as a practical and innovative pedagogic response to the need for language and cultural preparation in advance of work placement abroad.

The “ProblemSOLVE” project was later extended to become the “VOCAL Project”

The ProblemSOLVE project won one of the “European Language Label” awards in 2006.

What our students say...


"I was interested in developing research skills too – it’s great to be able to go out on your own with a problem and come back with a solution
I did my primary degree here so I knew the lecturers would be excellent help. Also the subject range interested me greatly, and I wanted to learn new technologies and gain new skills."
