Academic Modules

The modules in this programme may be taken for credit as part of your degree study or as a standalone module (for a separate fee). They are also open to postgraduate students and university staff. We offer a range of levels, depending on the language, as well as accelerated options for those who wish to develop their language skills at a faster pace.

Most of our modules are year-long and can therefore be taken for 24 or 30 CATS (determined by your home department). To give you more options, we have split our highest-level modules in French into two part-year modules (12/15 CATS each).

Lifelong Learning Courses

Unfortunately, at this time we do not offer Lifelong Learning courses in Portuguese.
