About European Studies (Italian) at University of Kent

Europe is geographically, linguistically and culturally diverse. It is also at the centre of many contemporary political debates. European Studies at Kent is based in the School of European Culture and Languages (SECL) and benefits from the interdisciplinary culture within the School. The programme gives you the opportunity to study Italian to an advanced level. In addition to your language modules, there is a wide range of options available to you covering the history, culture and politics of Europe and European nations.

Italian is spoken not just in Italy, but in San Marino, areas of Switzerland and Vatican City, as well as by communities located across Europe. 

Italian was one of the first language departments created at Kent and we are proud to offer a course of study where you learn Italian to a high standard and gain real insight into Italian culture, literature and society. We have native speakers teaching on campus, and Canterbury is the closest UK university city to mainland Europe, with Eurostar terminals nearby at Ashford and Ebbsfleet.

You can also take our European Studies programme with a focus on French, German or Spanish, or choose to study two languages in our combined languages programme. For details, see: 

  • European Studies (Combined Languages)
  • European Studies (French)
  • European Studies (German)
  • European Studies (Spanish).
