University of Bristol
The study of languages opens doors onto other societies, cultures and ways of seeing the world, and this has never been more important as the United Kingdom forges a new relationship with its European partners and seeks to develop its trading and cultural ties worldwide. The integral relationship between language and culture – in literature, visual cultures, history, thought, politics and linguistics – is at the heart of our degree programmes at Bristol, which help promote the personal and professional development of our students. The Modern Languages and Cultures stream for Sutton Trust is an engaging and inspiring programme of taster sessions during which you will experience what it is like to study languages at university. At Bristol, we offer many languages that you can study from scratch as a joint honours language degree, including German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Czech. You will get the chance to learn some of these languages as well as explore a new and exciting aspect of the politics, history, thought, linguistics or culture of a language that you are currently studying at A-Level. By the end of the Summer School, you will have discovered a range of stimulating topics that you can tailor to your personal interests if you apply to do a degree in Modern Languages.
