iwlp courses

Languages for All offers courses in a wide range of modern languages as part of its Institution Wide Language Programme (IWLP). We provide high quality courses for students, staff and the general public.

Routes to study

The main aims of the courses are to develop the ability to use the chosen language effectively for the purpose of practical oral and written communication, and to provide insights into the culture and civilisation of the country whose language is being studied

Please note that not all courses are offered every year. Also, because we are constantly reviewing our programme some courses may be dropped and new ones offered in their place. We reserve the right to cancel a class if there are insufficient enrolments. The standard ‘University hour’ is currently set at 50 minutes.
