The Language Centre offers pre-sessional English courses to help you to improve your English to the level needed to study an undergraduate, Masters or research degree. Our General English course will help you develop your day-to-day communication skills in English and learn more about British culture.

If you want to learn another language, you’ll find excellent resources to support your learning in our Language Zone.

Language courses and workshops while you are here

As well as teaching pre-sessional English courses we also offer academic English courses and workshops while you are studying your degree here.

Undergraduate students can learn another language through our Languages for All programme. Or if you’d like to learn another language independently, our Language Zone has resources available to you.
