FAQs for Lifelong Language Learning Courses

How do I enrol for an LLL course?

You can enrol online via our website. On our homepage you will find a link to our online enrolment forms (these will only be accessible during the enrolment period).

If you know what level you are - for example, if you have passed the previous level or you are a complete beginner - please enrol online.

If you are a non-beginner, and this is your first time on the LLL programme, you should speak to a tutor in your chosen language to determine the most appropriate level for you. Please contact us at smlcoffice at warwick dot ac dot uk and we will put you in touch with a tutor.

What are the fees for LLL courses?

The fees for LLL courses in 2023/24 are as follows:

  • All Warwick students (UG and PG) - £250
  • Staff and members of the public -
    • early-bird offer £250 if you register before 12:00 (midday) on Friday 15 September 2023
    • £275 from 13:00 on Friday 15 September 2023

Warwick Learning Account (WLA) vouchers cannot now be used for LLL courses. More information on the WLA voucher scheme can be found here:

How do I pay for the course?

When you complete our online enrolment form, you will also be taken to an online secure payment page. Payment can only be made online.

Your enrolment will not be complete without the payment being taken, and a space will not be reserved for you on the course.

How are the courses taught?

All LLL courses in 2023/24 will be taught online via MS Teams.

What happens after I have enrolled on a course?

Please make a note of the details for the class in which you have enrolled, including the day of the week that it is held and the start time. Our courses will begin on the following dates.

Decisions on which classes will run in 2023/24 will be made on Friday 6 October, and only enrolments for viable classes will be taken past this time.

If your enrolment has been successful, and we will be running the course for 2023/24, you will be sent an email confirmation by no later than Saturday 7 October 2023.

In the case of course cancellation prior to the course starting (for example sudden tutor unavailability or where enrolment is below the minimum group size required), a full refund will be given.

Can I enrol on LLL for one term only?

Enrolment is for the entire course (two terms, starting in October), as we need to ensure that we have viable groups which can cohere over a period of time and that our administrative costs are kept to a minimum.

Will I get a certificate?

If you are taking one of our LLL courses, you may be eligible for a certificate awarded by the Language Centre.

In order to be eligible for a certificate, you must comply with the following requirements:

  • Attend a minimum of 10 classes over terms 1 and 2
  • Complete all relevant assignments
  • Achieve sufficient can-do statements to progress to the next level

Please note: Certificates will be issued during the latter part of the university's summer vacation. If you are eligible for a certificate, you will be contacted by the centre over the summer, using the email address provided in the enrolment form, so please ensure that the contact information we have for you is up-to-date.

If you are an undergraduate student of the university (who meets the above criteria), you will not receive a specific certificate for completion of an LLL course; instead the course will be added to your HEAR (Higher Education Achievement Record) for that academic year.
