  • YEAR 2
In year 2 you will extend your linguistic skills and build your knowledge of the culture of the Portuguese-speaking (Lusophone) world. You will study a range of topics from both Brazil and Portugal, including cinema, literature, music and other aspects of Lusophone culture.
  • YEAR 3 (YEAR ABROAD)
If you progress to Honours you will spend your third year abroad in Portugal, Brazil or another Lusophone country, either as an exchange student via one of our established channels or by undertaking an approved work placement.
  • YEARS 4 AND 5
Portuguese is available as a Joint Honours programme, so you will study another subject alongside it in years 4 and 5. We place a strong emphasis on achieving a high degree of competence in the language.
