Italian

A charming, beautiful language with one of the richest cultural histories in Europe.

Italy is the home of the design and fashion industries as well as being one of the world leaders in the arts, cinema, architecture and music. With a rich history dating back to the Roman era, Italy has significantly influenced the development of Europe.

Our courses in Italian offers students the chance to not only learn the language to a high level of proficiency, but also explore the culture that has shaped the social landscape of this inspiring country.

Italian can be studied either from a beginner or advanced level depending on your ability. We apply innovative methodologies in our teaching, including small group activities and constant discussion, with the support of native Italian teachers and exchange students.

Why study Italian?

A language is a skill for life, and Italian opens up a host of opportunities to work in both the public and private sectors in Europe. The unique communications and intercultural skills that language graduates develop are in high demand by employers in the fields of teaching, fine arts, banking, the media, tourism and law to name a few.

Not only that, but understanding Italian means that you can explore some of the major contributions to European cultural life, including film and literature, in their native language.

Year abroad options

One of the most exciting elements of this course is the opportunity to study or work in Italy during the third year. Many students choose to join the Erasmus programme and study in some of Italy’s most inspiring cities, including Milan and Venice.
