About BA Italian and Russian

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 mean that it is a major global commercial force.

Russia continues to assert itself as an independent, powerful, political and economic force, so Russian expertise is increasingly important in a range of professions.

At Bristol you can learn one language from beginner level, or build on existing study at A-level, while exploring the nations' histories and cultures. Both small but distinguished departments offer a lively, friendly and supportive environment.

In language classes, you will develop speaking, listening, reading, writing and translation skills using a range of textbooks, media and internet resources. You will divide your third year between Italy and Russia on work or study placements.
