About

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 thriving centre for the study of modern languages and cultures, with a vibrant learning environment and state-of-the-art multimedia centre.

The French course offers a broad range of studies through the study of language, history, literature and culture, from medieval literature to French cinema. Students of Russian are introduced to a linguistic and cultural tradition encompassing some of Europe's most important writers, literary developments and ideological trends.

During the French and Russian programme from University of Bristol will achieve a high degree of fluency and accuracy in written and oral registers in both French and Russian, and study the history, literature and culture of countries where they are spoken. Many students find that studying two languages makes them stronger linguists.

In language classes, you will develop speaking, listening, reading, writing and translation skills using a range of textbooks, media and internet resources.

You will spend half of your third year in a French-speaking country and the other half in a Russian-speaking country, undertaking study or work placements.
