Add a new language … open up the world

International Students

Learning a new language can really broaden your horizons and will definitely give you the advantage and extra confidence needed when job hunting, communicating with new friends or travelling the world.

Our part-time language courses are open to everyone (students and members of the public) so whether you have already enjoyed great success studying languages or are just deciding to take up a new language as a challenge, we have the course to suit you.

Our classroom-based Applied Language Programme offers 28 weeks of taught classes per level and is formally assessed. Classes start each September.

Our guided self-study Worldwise Language Advantage Programme includes access to the world-leading language-learning software Rosetta Stone – via the PCs in our Worldwise Learning Centre – for the duration of the academic year. It also includes regular sessions with a language assistant during term-time and support from the Worldwise Team. You can register for this programme at any time during the year.

All languages are available at beginner’s level (except English) with the more popular languages available at higher levels. Some languages are only available on the Worldwise Language Advantage Programme.

Please contact us for further details on available levels and study options.
