This degree gives you the chance to study both Chinese and Portuguese from beginners level. You'll gain advanced communication skills in these two languages whilst also gaining an insight into the history, politics and cultures of China and Portuguese-speaking countries as well as the wider regions of Europe, Latin America and East Asia. You'll spend one year abroad in China and a term in a Portuguese-speaking country, this is an excellent opportunity to put your language skills into practice and gain first-hand experience of the local culture. We teach Chinese from beginners’ level, but if you already have some knowledge of the subject we can normally accommodate you. You’ll also benefit from the Camões Instituto– the cultural institute of the Portuguese government is on campus and you’ll have access to all of its facilities.
