Languages for All gives you the chance to improve your practical language skills and develop your cultural awareness. You can use your discovery module credits to study a language as part of your programme of study. You might want to study a language which is completely new to you or continue a language that you’ve studied before - we offer up to five language levels from complete beginners to advanced.

The modules are designed to develop all four skills – reading, listening, speaking and writing – but the emphasis is on developing your confidence in using the language. For an overview of the language levels and how they match the Common European Framework, please see our Language Levels page.

Class sizes are small with normally a maximum of 18 students in a group. This allows the learning to be interactive and means that you get to know your classmates. Students taking Languages for All modules come from across the University so there is an opportunity to meet students from other disciplines.
