Year abroad - Italian Studies

You will spend your third year in Italy, normally attending one of the Universities with which the Department has links Bologna, Cagliari, Ferrara, FlorenceGenova, Messina, Milan (IULM and Università Cattolica), 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.
