About BA Russian and Portuguese

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 joint honours course combines the study of Russian language and culture with Portuguese, offering you a window onto a much wider world.

Russia continues to assert itself as a powerful political and economic force, making Russian expertise vital in a range of professions. Portuguese is the seventh most widely spoken language in the world, and the political weight of countries such as Brazil and Angola means Portuguese speakers are increasingly in demand.

You can study one language from scratch or build on existing experience. Both departments offer a lively, friendly and supportive environment.

You will divide your third year abroad between a Russian-speaking and a Portuguese-speaking environment. There are a wide range of placements to choose from, which may include studying in a university, teaching English or working in a multinational company or non-governmental organisation.
