Important Information

The University is reviewing all of its modern language programmes and will do all that it can to minimise any changes to your studies.  However, it is possible this review may result in substantial changes to the modern language programmes, for example fee increases or the discontinuance of programmes in academic years beyond those outlined above.

Plus Icon How much will I pay?

The fee for the academic year 2019/20 for unaccredited programmes is £395.  The university reserves the right to cancel any unaccredited language programmes which are not viable due to insufficient students and/or staff.

The accredited Certificate Foundation Language Studies, the Certificate Languages and Related Studies and the Diploma Languages and Related Studies programmes are being discontinued at the end of the academic year 2019/20.  No new applicants for these programmes are therefore being accepted.  The second year of these programmes is being taught in 2019/20 only at a fee of £395.

The accredited Certificate of Higher Education Languages and Related Studies, the Diploma of Higher Education Language and Related Studies, the Bachelor of Arts Language and Related Studies and the Bachelor of Arts Honours Language and Related Studies programmes are only available for study in the following languages – German, French, Italian and Spanish.  For new applicants to these programmes, the fee for the first year of this programme in 2019/20 is £395 and for the second year in 2020/21 is £425.

Plus Icon What to do if you wish to withdraw from the course?

If you wish to withdraw from the course you must inform the course administrators in writing (email is preferred).  Withdrawals should be sent to ptlanguages@leedsbeckett.ac.uk otherwise you will continue to be enrolled as a student and remain on the mailing list for the duration of the course.

In accordance with Leeds Beckett University’s Student Regulations (Fee Schedule & Liability Policy 2019/20 – Section 4), there will be no refund for students who withdraw beyond the second week of teaching, which for 2019/20 will be 11 October 2019.

Please note that the current application form is for the academic year 2019/20 only.  A new application form is required for each new academic year.
