Program description

Italy is one of Europe's most creative and distinctive civilisations with a fascinating history and culture. You will receive a good foundation in both the language and in cultural studies and will spend a year teaching, working or studying in Italy. The small class sizes and vibrant Italian Society make it easy to get to know teaching staff and other students. The mixture of exchange students and Italian and UK staff creates an interesting and vibrant learning environment. Established in 1919, Italian at the University of Edinburgh offers you a solid foundation in both the language and the culture of Italy. The University hosts the largest population of Italian students in Scotland and one of the largest in the UK. You will benefit from involvement in the activities of the research clusters run by the department and from our close links with the Italian Cultural Institute in Edinburgh. You will also benefit from our links with the National Library of Scotland, which hosts a large collection of Italian manuscripts and books. Russia is the world's largest country and has the fifth most used language in the world. After a period of political, social and economic transformation, Russia is playing an increasingly bigger role in international politics. Russian studies at the University will give you a solid understanding of the Russian language and culture. You will study Russian literature, art, music and film and the country's political history. You will also have the opportunity to study in Russia to improve your language skills and experience Russian culture first hand.
