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 - simply click on your chosen day / time.

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. We do our best to be flexible and allow you to change class after you start 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 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 more information visit the Careers Network website.

All learners can request a Loughborough University Language Centre Certificate of Completion, providing they attended at least 70% of the classes. Certificates are to be requested before Easter and will be handed out in the final week of the course.
