You will spend your third year in Italy, normally attending one of the Universities with which the Department has links Bologna, Cagliari, Ferrara, Florence, Milan, Padua, Rome I (La Sapienza), Siena, Urbino and Verona (see Interactive Map below) - although there are occasionally places available at other universities.
You may also choose to apply for a post teaching in an Italian school under an approved programme, and, under certain circumstances, a work placement may be approved.
While abroad in Italy, at university you will attend courses and take Italian examinations. Other students write one long essay and submit a language project.
The year abroad, together with second year, counts 25% towards the final degree classification.
These are the Italian universities with which the department has developed links:
