Study Languages from the Centre for Modern Languages

If you are interested in doing a language as part of the degree (but not necessarily as major) then you have the additional option of taking languages from the Centre for Modern Languages either for credit (called a Module Outside the Main Discipline) or as an extracurricular Open Access Course.

Module Outside the Main Discipline timeslots differ from the regular language timeslots. For the Open Access variant there are a wide variety of possible class time slots, including evenings, to facilitate busy schedules and preferred working times.
