Unrestricted and not-for-credit modules
If you aren't studying a language degree but would still like to experience learning Portuguese at university, you can do so through Languages for All. Languages for All is a university-wide scheme for all students wishing to develop foreign language skills, either by learning a new language from scratch, or continuing to build on existing language experience.
If you have some experience of modern language learning, you can take Portuguese language and culture modules either as part of your degree (unrestricted modules) or alongside your degree (not-for-credit modules) as an extra-curricular activity. Please follow the link below for more information on how this works:
If you are a postgraduate taught student, you can study not-for-credit modules in Portuguese as an extra-curricular activity in addition to your studies.
Postgraduate research students can study Portuguese modules on a not-for-credit basis alongside their research. These may be included in your Doctoral Development Programme (DDP) portfolio if relevant to your doctoral research and/or career development.
General modules for all
The Modern Languages Teaching Centre (MLTC) provides general language modules in Portuguese. These are open to all students (for credits or not), members of staff, and members of the public.
