Hello from Professor Alex Thomson, Head of School

¡Bienvenidx! / Bem-vindx!  

Thank you for applying for a programme in Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies, and congratulations if you're already holding an offer! Either way, I’m delighted that you are interested in studying with us, and we very much hope that you will join our community.

The School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC) offers one of the widest range of languages of any UK university. Our students and graduates tell us that they value the School’s friendliness, the connections they have made here, and the in-depth guidance of our staff, who are experts in their field and passionate about what they do. They also tell us they love the city of Edinburgh and what it has to offer.

We specialise in teaching students with varying amounts of language experience so, whatever your existing level, you will be in good hands. Many of our students in Portuguese started as complete beginners in the language.

We’ve provided as much information as we can here to help you on your way to choosing the right university for you.

Good luck, and we hope to see you in September.
