The Centre is also home to a thriving modern foreign language programme, which is open to the general public. Manchester Met students, staff and alumni can benefit from a discounted fee.

We also have a high number of native foreign language-speaking staff who lend the Centre a truly international and multicultural atmosphere.‌
