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. Our Joint Honours degree in Czech and Portuguese allows you to study two unusual but pivotal European cultures. Both departments enjoy a strong reputation for teaching and research. The Czech Republic has established itself as a centre for banking, finance, media, diplomacy and tourism, while the rise of the Brazilian and Angolan economies and recent major sporting events in Brazil mean Portuguese speakers are increasingly in demand.

You will take units in both languages in year one and choose from a range of options in years two and four. Optional units combine cultural, historical and sociological approaches. In language classes you will develop speaking, listening, reading, writing and translation skills using a range of textbooks, media and internet resources. You will spend five months of your third year in the Czech Republic, either at a university or on a work placement, and the remainder of your placement in a Portuguese-speaking country.
