At Keele we offer 2 levels of Italian, available to all Keele students and staff.

If you love the good things in life, then you MUST learn Italian! Italian is a valuable language within the EU and Italy is a leading manufacturer and exporter of quality products, well known world-wide for its cultural heritage and influence. Whether you choose this language for personal reasons, as a pertinent complement to your main subject, or to increase your chances in your future life and career, you can rest assured this experience will be both useful and enjoyable!

Which level do I choose?

There are 2 levels (stages 1 & 2). The qualifications table will show you the most appropriate module for your level of language competence. Where GCSE qualifications are given, we assume these were taken 2-5 years ago.

Keele Students

If you choose a Modern Language module as a free-standing elective within your undergraduate degree programme there is no additional cost.

If your principal programme does not allow you to take any free-standing elective modules you can still enrol on one language module per semester free of charge.  Equally, if you can only choose one free-standing elective per year you can take a second module in the same language without additional charges.


Students who have sufficient free-elective space but would like to take one or more Modern Language modules in addition to their degree have to pay a module fee of £250 for the first module and £199 for a second module in the same language in the same year.

We are pleased to offer our PGT and PGR students a number of free places on our language modules (subject to availability). For details please e-mail

Please contact the Language Centre office ( who will be happy to advise on any of the above.

Keele Staff

As part of Keele's international strategy, the Language Centre offers free places on credit-bearing language modules to staff.


Times for classes are dependent on the Keele undergraduate timetable and will be available from the beginning of the academic year.

What Students Say

Here's what some of our previous students had to say about our Italian Modern Language modules:

"I've really enjoyed the language and module and I felt really welcomed."

"I want to make this clear: I love this module (Italian 2) and I can honestly say that the tutor is one of the best teachers that Keele could ask for."

"It was really good to learn that amount of grammar at the beginning because it makes you feel like you can actually talk even though you haven't studied that much yet."

"I am amazed at how much I have learned in ten short weeks."

"This module was great as expected."
