Comments about BA English and Italian Literature - At the institution - Coventry - West Midlands

  • Objectives
    English and Italian Literature (50% English, 50% Italian) has a strong and distinctive comparative approach and has been specially designed for those who wish to begin or pursue a study of Italian language and literature whilst continuing to study the English tradition as well as exploring their interconnections and interactions. Italian and European Literature allows the study of Italian alongside European language, literature, and culture and is taken in one of three possible variants. Italian components in language, culture, and literature are studied alongside modules in either (a) French language and culture, or (b) German language and culture, or (c) aspects of European literature.
  • Entry requirements
    General university admissions requirements All applicants must possess a minimum level of competence in English Language and in Mathematics or a Science. A pass at Grade C or above in GCSE English Language and in Mathematics or a Science, or an equivalent qualification, fulfils this requirement. For some courses, requirements are above this University minimum, so you should check the relevant course-specific entry requirements in our hard copy prospectus which you can order online or browse on our online directory. We usually ask for candidates to show a broad base of study at GCSE level (or equivalent) with passes in at least five subjects from a range of disciplines.
