The School of Arts and Humanities at Swansea offers a wide range of degree schemes in Italian allowing you to integrate high-level linguistic skills and broad background knowledge of this country’s historic cultural riches and contemporary social diversity into a very personal academic and career pathway – with the bonus of a year’s study in Italy.
Italian at Swansea University is open to beginners, as well as those with previous knowledge. We offer Joint Honours programmes with other European Languages, Translation and Interpreting, Arts and Humanities subjects , Economics, Geography and Law.

Andy Patton, BA Italian and Spanish Graduate says:
“One of the most attractive aspects of my degree was the inclusion of a study year abroad. I went to Italy to study at the Alma Mater Studiorum Università di Bologna, from which I have 11 months of fantastic memories.”
Alex Giacon, BA Italian Graduate says:
“I enjoyed meeting new friends at Swansea. The whole university experience allowed me to grow as a person, and has helped me get to where I am today. I now work for Yahoo! As a Planning and Strategy Executive in the Global Sales Team, which helps support and update sales managers about new products and responds to briefs that come in from clients.”

Swansea has an enviable reputation when it comes to promoting research and our facilities are world-class. The admissions tutor can provide you with detailed information on the varied research facilities available to you for this course.
All modules are taught in small classes. The format (lecture, seminar discussion, written or oral language class) and the medium of instruction (English or Italian) vary according to the topic, and the needs of the group at any given time. Language Laboratory, Computer Assisted Language Learning, and TV/video facilities are available for private study, as well as being fully integrated elements in a number of modules. Different modules employ different, and in many cases, mixed methods of assessment. These include written examinations, essays and other assessed work completed either in class or in students’ own time, and oral/aural language tests, according to the topic and level of the module.
Information regarding dates and times for Enrolment can be found on the Student Records webpages.
