The Language Centre

Language Centre

The Language Centre is based on the main Streatham Campus. We provide a range of language courses, including daytime Undergraduate modules as part of your degree and a certificated Evening Language Programme which has a fee. 

You can choose to learn a completely new language, or to improve one you have studied before.  Undergraduate modules are available in British Sign Language, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Russian and Spanish at a range of levels from Beginners to Advanced, with some Fast-Track modules enabling you to progress to a higher level more quickly. And with employers increasingly looking for graduates across all subjects who have additional language skills, you can choose to have the language modules you study with the Language Centre named in your degree title, ‘with proficiency in…’

The Evening Language Programme provides a cost-effective way of learning a language, without the pressure of exams. Courses are designed to give you greater confidence in speaking a foreign language, whether for work, travel or just for fun. They are open to staff, alumni and students (for a discounted fee) and to members of the public, so it’s a great way of meeting new people as well. Languages available are Arabic, British Sign Language, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Mandarin Chinese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish.
