Modern Languages University of Bristol

Undergraduate

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 one of the United Kingdom's leading centres for the study of modern languages and cultures.

You will have the opportunity to study any three of the following languages offered by the School of Modern Languages: French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, German, Russian and Czech.

An A-level is required in two of your chosen languages, while the third is studied from beginners' level. Please note that French cannot be studied as a beginners' language.

This degree offers students the opportunity to gain a high level of proficiency in three foreign languages. In addition to an intensive language programme, you will benefit from Bristol's extensive range of cultural options, all taught by leading academic experts in their fields.

You will divide your third year between countries relevant to your chosen languages, exploring the culture and society while studying at a partner institution, teaching English or undertaking a work placement.
