Language Entitlement Programme: Free Language Classes

SOAS would like all its students to possess at least a basic working knowledge of one of the languages in which tuition is available at SOAS. Under the Language Entitlement Programme (LEP), current undergraduate and postgraduate taught students, and also Study Abroad students, regardless of department or degree, are entitled to register for one language course for free. Please note: this course is additional to your regular study programme and is not for credit.

You do not need to have any prior experience of language study to take a language course as part of the LEP. Employers welcome graduates with language skills, so the LEP is a great way to enhance your CV. On completion, LEP students may request a certificate of attendance stating the level attained. Transcripts and formal accreditation are not available.

A Draft Timetable of all the Beginner LEP classes intended to be offered by the Language Centre can be viewed LEP Draft Timetable 2018 (pdf; 191kb) .

Please note that classes are subject to a quorum and not all of these classes are guaranteed to run.

Further information about LEP classes will be given at talks scheduled during Welcome Week.

All Language Centre LEP classes are in Term 2 starting Week Beginning 15th January 2018. There will be a 6 week enrolment period from 23rd October 2017 till 3rd December 2017. You cannot enrol outside of this period. No early or late enrolments will be accepted.
