Check with your home Department to make sure you are eligible to take a 20-credit language course as a Level I or Level H module. If so, you must enrol with Languages for All in the summer term of the current year to reserve your place (Subject to availability of places, we may be able to accept late enrolments up until week 1 of the autumn term). See our Course Descriptions page for the MOMD Handbooks, which detail all the optional language modules available at Levels I and H in 2017-18, then register here. This registration form is only available to continuing students who will be taking a language module within their programme of study. If your degree programme restricts you to taking a language course on an extracurricular basis, please see our Free Language Courses webpage.
Our timetable is based on the timeslots reserved for MOMD courses on the University block timetable with alternative timeslots offered in daytimes and/or evenings for the more popular modules. Provisional timetable information will be published here at the end of May 2017 although we reserve the right to make changes, if necessary, depending upon the level of enrolments and take-up of places in teaching groups.
All language MOMDs comprise 2 hours of teaching per week, at which attendance is compulsory. Canvas is used to supplement the contact hours with your tutor. For project-based courses, contact hours are reduced, but your course tutor is available at set times for advice and guidance.
Language MOMDs are assessed by a written unseen examination in the University’s main examination period and an oral examination, which takes place in the first week after the Easter vacation.
Tandem Learning involves structured learning in partnership with a native speaker of your target language, supervised by our teaching staff. If your current language proficiency is at a higher intermediate or advanced level, and you would be interested to find out more about Tandem Learning MOMDs as an alternative to our conventional taught courses, please contact the relevant Language Co-ordinator in Languages for All for further information. At present, these modules are available in French, German, Spanish and Japanese only.
