General English course  Teaching and sample timetable

Find out about how our 2022 General English course will be taught and see a sample timetable.


You’ll be taught by our team of English language tutors who are academics at the University. The way we teach is informed by research into teaching languages, which means our teaching methods help you get the most out of your learning.

Start dates are throughout the year, so you can study when it suits you. Study full-time or part-time, for 3 to 40 weeks. See our course dates information.

Classes are scheduled during Monday to Friday between 9am and 4pm for full-time students, and between 9am and 1pm for part-time students. Teaching takes place on the University of Leeds campus. A typical class size is between 14 and 16 students per class.
