Many of our outbound opportunities offer teaching in English. However, if you are going to a country where English is not the principle language, why not take the opportunity to learn a language?
There are a number of different opportunities for you to learn a new language before and during your study or work placement abroad.
Uniwide Languages offers an opportunity for all students at Manchester Met to develop foreign language skills. Students can study a Uniwide language as part of their degree as a 15 credit or 30 credit unit, or as an additional extra for a tuition fee of £205-£210 per year.

The Erasmus+ Online Linguistic Support platform offers Erasmus study or work placement students the opportunity to assess their foreign language competency before going abroad. Students can participate in an online language course during the study or work placement and are able to assess their language level at the end of the period abroad to see whether living abroad has improved their language competence.
Languages students in receipt of an Erasmus grant, who will be studying or working in an environment whereby the primary language is not English, will have to take the Erasmus+ OLS assessments as part of the Erasmus grant requirements.
Students studying other disciplines can opt in or out, however we encourage you to utlise the OLS. They are free of charge, available in 25 different languages, and will help you to develop your foreign language skills.
Some of our partner universities are delivering a wide range of short programmes which include elements of language learning as part of the course.
