If I want to study a language at uni do I already need to speak it to a certain degree?

For example I want to study mandarin or cantonese at university, however I don’t speak a word of either, is this a problem or do universities assume you are a complete beginner in languages like this? also is it different for european languages such as french and spanish?? (I am based in UK)
