Open Languages

A new way to learn a modern language

Open Languages, the University of Liverpool’s Institution-Wide Language Programme, offers a suite of language modules including Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Spanish, with a flexible learning system.

Open Languages (OL) is available to UG students who can choose to study a language as part of their degree programme* and to those who wish to take a language in addition to it. OL is also available to staff and members of the public.

Regardless of the study mode, all Open Languages modules are delivered via weekly 2-hour seminars on campus, supported with asynchronous materials on Canvas.

*Currently, subjects offering Open Languages as electives are: Chemistry, Geography, History, International Business, International Relations and Maths.
