Please note: the Language Centre will not be offering either continuation or taster courses in summer 2019. This decision has not been taken lightly and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

We provide language learning opportunities for undergraduate and postgraduate students, University staff, and members of the public. There are several ways you can learn languages with us. You can take a language as part of your degree, as an extra course of study, through a language proficiency test or by taking a shorter summer course.

Academic modules

Academic Module Timetable 2018-19

If you want to take a language as part of your degree, our academic modules are most suited to your needs. Enrolment for these courses for 2018/19 will take place on the following dates:

· Friday 28 September (Welcome Week) 10am-4pm = Main enrolment (Day 1)

· Tuesday 2 October (week 1) 10am-4pm = Main enrolment (Day 2)

· Wednesday 3 October (week 1) 10am-4pm = Main enrolment (Day 3)

Our academic modules can also be taken independently from degree study; a separate fee is required for this.

Please make sure you check with your department that you can take a module with us as part of your degree. If this is not allowed, you are still more than welcome to take an academic module with us. This is also the case if you are not an undergraduate student (please see the course fees).


Lifelong language learning

If you are looking for something a little more relaxed, our Lifelong Language Learning (LLL) programme may be for you!

Classes are not as intense as academic modules and are taken by students, staff and members of the public.
