Dates

Courses run for 20 weeks during term-time, starting in the week beginning 9th October 2017. We advise early registration for beginner classes to avoid disappointment. 

Refunds: any refunds must be requested in writing to languages@lboro.ac.uk by Friday 13th October at 4 pm and are subject to a £20 fee. Refunds requested after this date will only be granted in exceptional circumstances. (NB this applies to 20-week courses only; no refunds can be offered for single-semester Fast Track courses once they have started).

The University reserves the right to cancel any course which does not recruit a viable number of students. A full refund will be made in this case, including where a first class may have been attended.

Attendance

Regular attendance is vital in order to make progress with your course. If you fail to attend three or more classes without notifying your tutor or the Language Centre, you will be considered to have withdrawn and your place may be offered to a student on the waiting list. No refund will be given.

How to join / Payment

Registration and payment is through the Loughborough University Online Store; you will find a link to the store at the top of each course description.

The first time you use the Online Store, you will be asked to set up an account. Once this has been completed you will be able to use the secure site to register and pay for courses.

The  Evening Classes Self-assessment Table will help you choose the right level; if you are still unsure please get in touch and ask for advice. Changing classes after you start is possible if you find the level isn't quite right.

We shall continue to take registrations until classes are full. 

NB Places are limited, and demand (especially for level 1 classes) is high, so early registration is advised.

Award / Certificate on Completion

For undergraduate students, registration on an extra-curricular language course can count towards the Loughborough University Employability Award. For information visit the Careers Network website.

All learners can request a Loughborough University Language Centre Certificate of Completion, providing they attended at least 80% of the classes. Certificates are to be requested before Easter and will be handed out in the final week of the course.
