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 aged 16 and over.

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.
