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.

Studying Italian and Russian 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' history and culture. 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.
