We are one of the longest established international centres for the study of Catalan. Our interests cover the language, literature, popular culture, art and politics of the Catalan people.

Study Catalan as part of Hispanic Studies

You will study Catalan as part of Hispanic Studies, rather than as a stand-alone course. Hispanic studies is a diverse course covering the languages, literatures, cultures and histories of Spain, Portugal and Latin America. Our native speakers will teach you their language and share their enthusiasm of all things Catalan.


We have strong links with the Institut Ramón Llull to spread worldwide interest in Catalan language and culture. 

We have a fully-equipped language laboratory and a Language Lounge that can also be used for private study.

Our programmes offer excellent career preparation and a launchpad for postgraduate study and research.
