Short Language Courses: Winter 2019

Enrolment for all Beginners 1 courses for the Winter Term is now open to the public. Complete beginners can enrol onto the chosen course directly by clicking the Online Store link and finding your course in the Language Centre section.

Sometimes the Online Store may say ‘Out of Stock’. This is to give us time to stock-take and create a new class for courses that are popular. If you see ‘Out of Stock’ for your chosen course, please contact the language administrator by phone or e-mail and they may still be able to enrol you on the course.

Enrolment for post-Beginner 1 courses will open on Monday 26th November. Please note that, if you are applying for a Post-Beginner level course and you have not studied the chosen language with us before, or there has been some time since you last studied it, you will be asked to go through the language assessment and course placement procedure. The enrolment process for those who already have some knowledge of the chosen language will be more efficient if you can arrange to have a placement assessment as soon as possible.

Please see here for more details on Assessment and Placement Process.
