      To take into account

      · What are the objectives of this course?

      Optional modules in Italian range from contemporary Italian culture and comparative literature to the study of aspects of Medieval and Renaissance thought and culture. In the intermediate and final year you can choose from a range of advanced modules in the department and, in the final year, you can choose to research a dissertation if you wish. Portuguese can only be taken at beginner level or post-GCSE level maximum. You will develop your linguistic skills by taking a language module in your first, intermediate and final year. By the end of the course you will be expected to reach B2 standard (CEFR) in Portuguese (this approximates to A Level). You can spend your year abroad either in Italy for the whole year, or you can split your time -between Italy and a Portuguese-speaking country.
