Expertise in modern languages has never been more important as the United Kingdom forges a new relationship with its European partners and seeks to develop its trading and cultural ties throughout the world. If you are a beginner in Italian, you will spend most of your first year learning the language. You will also take a year-long unit in Modern Italian Culture and History. Post A-level students consolidate and enhance their existing knowledge of Italian and can choose from a wider range of culture units on topics such as Medieval Italy, Renaissance Italy and Italian Colonial Culture. For the rest of the degree all students follow the same language course and choose from a wide range of culture options, taught by leading experts in their fields of Italian culture. Language is taught by native speakers who use a range of approaches and excellent multimedia facilities to develop your fluency and accuracy. In your third year, you can either study at a partner university in Italy or work on an approved placement.
