Italian seaside town in the Cinque Terre region


Knowledge of Italian is very useful in the fields of art and culture, music, business and design. The Italian language is key to study and research in the fields of art history, literature, archaeology and philosophy. Italy has been a favourite travel destination for centuries. A UNESCO report states that over 60% of the world’s art treasures are to be found in Italy, and Italy is the country with the highest number of UNESCO cultural heritage sites. Knowing Italian enables you to better appreciate and enjoy classical music. Musicians and opera singers consider it a key professional skill. With Italian designers such as Versace, Gucci, Armani, Benetton, and Prada, Italy is also the home of fashion and design.

Italian is being introduced from September 2021. In 2021/22, a year-long beginner's module in Italian Language & Culture is being taught, which can be taken for credit (15 credits) or not for credit, as extra-curricular.

There are no Italian modules open for registration for Semester 2 only, they will restart from September 2022.
