Great teaching, great value
Learn from experienced tutors who have a passion for languages. Most are native speakers of the languages they teach and can really help you to immerse yourself in the culture of your chosen language. We offer high-quality accredited courses from only £375.
Excellent learning facilities
From our award-winning library, which is open 24 hours a day every day of the year, where you can access newspapers and other media in different languages, to online resources you can access from home, our learning facilities will support your educational needs.
As a student of one of our part time language courses you can access a fantastic range of sports facilities with our great value gym membership and apply for a NUS card which entitles you to receive discounts from a host of high street shops and restaurants.
Gain a qualification or learn for fun
Our University is dedicated to lifelong learning and we are proud to offer three learning routes that are available to all. Study to degree level on one of our accredited routes or enjoy learning about other languages and cultures just for fun.
