How to Register

If you are able to select wild modules as part of your degree programme, you can opt to take our world language modules when you make your modules choices via the Module Catalogue. Just search the module code (e.g. LA307) in the module catalogue.

If you are unsure if your degree programme allows for wild modules, you will need to contact your school.

Languages as an Extra

If you are not permitted to select wild modules as part of your degree programme, we also offer students the opportunity for students to study a language as an extra-curricular module. The module will not be for credit but will appear on your transcript. For more information, please visit our Languages as an Extra webpage.
