University of Bristol has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
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 centre for the study of modern languages and cultures, and offers an exciting environment in which to carry out your studies.
Our Joint Honours degree in German and Portuguese enables you to explore two of the most vibrant cultures in Europe. Both departments enjoy a strong reputation for teaching and research.
Germany remains central to the European economy, guaranteeing high demand for advanced fluency in the German language and familiarity with the diverse nature of the culture, history, politics and lifestyle of the German-speaking world.
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.
You will divide your third year between a German-speaking and a Portuguese-speaking country. You can either study at one of our partner universities in Germany, Austria, Portugal and Brazil or do a work placement.
