    I've been looking into those courses, at Manchester specifically here, it's "English Literature and a Modern Language (Italian)".

    It says in the description, the language can be done ab-initio, which is what I would intend to do. But it also says this (in entry requirements):

    A level:
    AAB-ABC including English Literature or English Language & Literature (grade A), and a Modern Foreign Language (Grade B).

    My question is does that mean a SEPERATE language to Italian? Or, if you were intending to do ab-initio Italian, does that apply to you - would you have to have a language A-Level in another language?

    Sorry if that didn't really make sense btw haha

    They just want you to have an A-Level in any foreign language. It's most likely to be French, Spanish or German as they don't expect many schools to offer Italian at A-Level - so they don't make it a mandatory requirement. It's just there to show you are capable of learning languages.

    Basically, if you have a language at A-Level you're fine. If not, pick one up fast or e-mail admissions.
