Comments about BA Italian Studies - At the institution - Reading - Berkshire
This degree will provide you with a high level of linguistic competence in both spoken and written Italian. It will give you a broad understanding of the most important features of Italian culture and history since the Middle Ages, and will enable you to explore, in depth, specific aspects and periods of this culture and history.
There are different entry qualifications for each programme. Some programmes require you to have a certain amount of knowledge in a subject before you begin the degree programme – this is called a ‘subject requirement’. Other programmes do not have any specific subject requirements. All programmes will, however, expect you to have reached a certain standard in your education and will ask you to achieve certain grades in your examinations. Most programmes have a standard offer so that you know in advance what you are likely to need. Please note that even if you have the minimum entry qualifications, you are not necessarily guaranteed a place on the degree programme.
