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.
Enrolment for our summer taster courses is now open!
We offer a 10-week taster course in a number of different languages for absolute beginners who want to try a completely new language.
Please see here for further details, including course dates, fees and relevant enrolment forms.
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 takes place on the 4th, 5th and 6th of October in the Language Centre (between 10am and 4pm each day) – you must attend on one of these days to enrol for our courses.
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).
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.
Enrolment for 2017/18 LLL courses will open online in mid-September.
Please note that decisions on which classes will run in 2017/18 will be made on Friday 6th October, and only enrolments for viable classes will be taken past this time
Students will be emailed on Saturday 7th October to confirm whether or not their chosen class will run in 2017-18
