More about this course

Explore two linguistic and cultural worlds by combining French and Italian. Alongside the language and linguistics, you’ll study topics such as the culture, history and society of the countries speaking your two languages. You’ll experience living and either working or studying in the different countries in Year 3. As a result, your high-level language and intercultural skills are essential in a global job market after graduation.

Hull offers excellent language learning facilities, with a dedicated space for languages students. Our team of Language Learning Advisors offer extra one-to-one support to help you with your studies, as well as a partnership scheme which allows you to practise your chosen languages with native speakers. While studying for your degree, you have the opportunity to gain a recognised teaching qualification in Trinity CertTESOL (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). If you don’t have the qualifications to enter the programme directly, we offer a foundation year to prepare you for degree-level study.
