About this course

Develop strong language skills on this Spanish and Portuguese degree and gain a deep understanding of both cultures. You'll improve your fluency and employability skills by spending a year living and working abroad.

We'll make sure you start at a level that matches your ability in written and spoken Spanish and Portuguese. This means, if you’re a strong student, you can start one of these languages from scratch - and make rapid progress in both.

You'll have excellent resources to support you. The Centre for Language Study at Southampton has everything you need.

You can tailor your degree to areas that interest you. These might include:

  • taking a third language

  • choosing modules from other subject areas

  • exploring more about Spanish or Portuguese linguistics, history and culture

In your year abroad you could choose to go to Spain, France, Switzerland or Latin America - we have links in Chile, Colombia and Mexico. Through our innovative scheme in Mexico, developed in partnership with the Mexican Education Ministry, you could work as a Language Resources Assistant in a University.
