We offer language courses to suit all abilities, interests, and methods of study. You can learn a language from home at your own pace, or improve your language skills by learning a language as part of your degree.

Graduate Diplomas

Our graduate-level diploma courses builds your language skills. It is suitable if you want to teach your particular language, or if you already have a school qualification in it (such as a Higher or A-level) and are looking to further your skills for work or personal interest.

Languages for All

Our Languages for All programme offers everyone the opportunity to learn a language, whether for personal or professional reasons. Classes are taught in the evening and you can choose from a wide range of languages, many of which are available at different levels. 

Distance learning courses

Learn at home, and at your own pace. You can start from a basic knowledge of a language, (or even none if you are a competent linguist), and we will take you up to Higher level in our Intensive courses, over 25 weeks (or less).
