Uniwide Languages

A warm welcome to all new students and staff, and to all who are thinking about doing a language this year.

The following languages are available to study: Spanish, Classical Latin, Modern Standard Arabic, French, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, German, Italian and English as a Foreign Language.

Foreign language knowledge provides a clear advantage in today's job market and is a great way to enhance your CV; it shows an awareness of other cultures which helps make you a real ‘citizen of the world'.

Language lessons are different from your other lectures and often good fun; in our Uniwide classes you can meet students from all over the university. Our rates of progression are high, and our students say they enjoy interacting with native speakers and other learners in a collaborative atmosphere. We feel sure you will benefit from learning a language with us this year.
