Course details
Course UCAS code: RR45
Qualification type:
  • BA (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
- The course gives students a thorough grounding in the languages and cultures of the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking worlds. - Alongside their advanced study of Spanish language, students explore a range of options in film, history and literature from the Spanish-speaking world. - Students study both European and Brazilian Portuguese alongside a range of options in areas such as contemporary culture, colonialism, literature and cinema from Brazil, Portugal, Mozambique and Angola. - After Year One Portuguese language is not compulsory and students can (a) choose to concentrate more on the Spanish side of their degree, (b) maintain the balance between the languages, or (c) by Year Four opt to study more in Portuguese than Spanish. - Year 3 is spent abroad, either in a Spanish-speaking country or split between Portuguese- and Spanish-speaking countries (on university exchange, work placement, or teaching as an English-language assistant). **Special Features** - The breadth of expertise among staff across Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies means an unusually rich and broad curriculum. - Our language courses are taught by native speakers with specific training. As a result, both your written and your oral work are enhanced by constant exposure to accurate, idiomatic, and documented language. - You will be taught by both Portuguese and Brazilian language teachers and by Spanish speakers from Latin America and Spain. - You can change the balance away from Portuguese towards Spanish after Year One, or not, depending on your developing interests. - Courses on culture and history are taught by staff who are all published authors in their field. - There are outstanding resources for students, including world leading collections on Lusophone Africa within the library and access to thousands of films and texts on Latin America, Portugal and Spain.

    Manchester is a brilliant choice for anyone considering going to university - young or old. There seems to be almost everything for everyone. You can easily adapt to campus life and you will absolutely love the thriving nightlife. I was born and raised in Manchester and going to university there has been the best choice I made. The staff are really friendly and go beyond their means to help you. What more could you possibly want? :)
