Extra-curricular course

Open Language modules can be taken as extra-curricular options on top of your chosen degree subject.

If your degree programme doesn’t allow you to choose a language for credits, don’t worry – you can study a language by paying a small fee for each module. 

You can start in any year of your studies, whether as a new student or a current student. After completing a language module, you will receive a certificate of completion, and your achievement will be recorded in your Higher Education Achievement Record (HEAR). 

  • Beginners modules are two hours of timetabled teaching per week, between 1pm and 3pm on Wednesday afternoon. 
  • Intermediate modules are two hours of timetabled teaching per week, between 3pm and 5pm on Wednesday afternoon. 
  • Advanced moduled are three to four hours of timetabled teaching per week. These modules are taught with current undergraduate students, and will be scheduled around your existing timetable where possible.
