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 an opportunity to acquire a detailed knowledge of the world of politics. The programme is designed to provide you with a deep knowledge of the cultures where Portuguese is spoken, and to explore and evaluate a variety of issues, theories, systems, and institutions in international politics (both past and present). 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.
