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. The University of Bristol is a major centre for the study of modern languages and cultures. This course will broaden your horizons and extend your linguistic and critical skills. Italian language and culture have had a lasting impact on Europe. Today, Italy's innovative contributions to design, technology and fashion make it a major global commercial force.

Portuguese is the seventh most widely spoken language in the world, and is an official language in nine countries across four continents. The rise of the Brazilian and Angolan economies, and recent major sporting events in Brazil, mean Portuguese speakers are increasingly in demand. These two small but distinguished departments provide a friendly, supportive and challenging learning environment. You will divide your third year between Italy and a Portuguese-speaking environment in Europe or Latin America.
