Portuguese is one of the world's most important languages, spoken in Europe, South America, and Africa. Study at the University of Edinburgh encompasses learning about the fascinating literatures and cultures where Portuguese is spoken, as well as the language. This programme is designed to perfect your linguistic skills in the sixth most widely spoken language in the world and provide you with a deep knowledge of literature and culture. Alongside studying Portuguese language, you will explore a range of texts, both literary and non-literary, from the English-speaking world, Portugal, Brazil and the five African nations where Portuguese is spoken, and undertake rigorous and critical study of the production, reception and interpretation of texts, both literary and non-literary. International culture flourishes at the University of Edinburgh, with a thriving Centre for Contemporary Latin American Studies, an annual Spanish film festival, an annual student-led Spanish play, and an annual Portuguese translation workshop, supported by the Instituto CamÃµes Portuguese Language Centre. Our dedicated staff will ensure a supportive learning environment for your studies.
