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 combines the chance to perfect your skills in the sixth most widely spoken language in the world and to acquire a detailed understanding of advanced human knowledge. The programme is designed to provide you with a deep engagement with the cultures where Portuguese is spoken, exploration and analysis of how philosophers past and present have understood the world, and an opportunity to learn the arts of argument, critical enquiry, reasoning, and clarity of expression. 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.
