Funded places available

A limited number of fully funded places are available for eligible Scottish applicants through the Scottish Government's Upskilling Fund.

If you are living in Scotland and are currently:

  • unemployed and seeking work
  • at risk of redundancy or their job under threat as a result of Covid-19 or the economic impact of EU Exit
  • employed and have identified a skills gap in their current job

then you can apply for a fully funded place.

Our 25 week Intensive Courses are intended for those wishing to jump-start a language.

You would normally be expected to have some basic knowledge of the language you want to study, but if you are a competent linguist and are willing to dedicate sufficient time (approximately 4 to 5 hours per week), then you could start from scratch.

These are flexible courses which you study from home, and will take you from the basics up to the equivalent of SQA Higher and beyond.

If you complete the course satisfactorily you will receive a Certificate of Course Completion and 20 SCQF credits.

These courses are often taken by people wishing to take the Graduate Diploma who lack the necessary qualifications.
