How to enrol

How to enrol on a language module

Modules for credit

When the time comes to pick your modules, select a language from the online module choices. You will be asked to provide your most recent qualification or experience of learning the language, to help the Language Centre register you for the module that best fits your level of competence. We highly recommend you visit our Frequently Asked Questions section.

If you cannot enrol through the online module system, contact the administrative team for your main degree. They will check you can take a language module and will send us your request.

Extra-curricular modules

If you would like to join a module on an extra-curricular basis – in other words, without gaining credits towards your degree – fill in the form below and the Language Centre administrator will contact you.

What level will I be assigned to?

We assign you to a level based on prior experience, which includes any qualifications and additional competence you might have. Include as much information as you can in the module choice platform, we will get in touch if we have questions.

Once you are on the most closely matched module, further evaluation takes place at the start of the semester, in class and through diagnostic activities set before the first class.

Here are a few examples showing correlations between qualification and modules:

  • No experience: Level 1, complete beginners
  • GCSE or iGCSE A-B / 6-9: Level 3
  • AS Level: Level 5
  • A Level or International Baccalaureate SL: Level 7
  • CEFR C1: Level 11

We can evaluate you on a one-to-one basis if your case is not clear-cut (for example, you have studied independently, but have no qualification, or have an imbalance in skills).
