I would love to study Spanish at university. Of course, there are so many options to choose from, these are my top 6-

1. University of Cambridge - Spanish and ab initio Portuguese
2. Univeristy of Southampton - Spanish and Portuguese
3. University of Warwick - Hispanic Studies/ Lingustics with Spanish
4. University of Bristol - Hispanic Studies/ Spanish and Portuguese
5. University of Manchester - Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies
6. University of York - Spanish and Linguistics/ Spanish and Italian.

I've been writing my personal statement but because these courses are not all the same, I can't just say 'I'd love to study ...' as they are all different. Is there a way of getting around this or can I just apply for one of these 'types' of course like Spanish and Portuguese? Should I be including all of them in my personal statement? (I know I can only apply to five, I'm still deciding)

Thank you so much!!!

You could touch on the fact that you also want to learn other languages.

Yes but also mention you're intrigued by other European cultures(try naming a region).
