What will I learn?

The PGDipArts is an alternative to the Bachelor of Arts (Honours). This programme might be for you if you want to undertake advanced study without writing a dissertation, if honours degrees aren’t recognised in your country, or if you would like to study part-time over a longer period.

You can use a completed PGDipArts with a GPA of 5.0 or higher as an entry qualification for the one-year Master of Arts.

Italian

You can study the language and culture of Italy, and learn to read, write and speak Italian.

In Italian language courses you can learn to speak, read and write Italian. You can study the language from beginners' to advanced levels.

You can also study contemporary literature, film and drama, or medieval and Renaissance culture. Certain courses may be taken without studying the language.

Where can Italian take you?

Italian can enhance careers in translation, tourism, interpreting or business.
