How to register

If you are able to select elective modules as part of your degree programme, you can opt to take language modules when you make your module choices via the Module Catalogue. Just search the module code (eg LS302) in the module catalogue.

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

If you are not permitted to select elective modules as part of your degree programme, we also offer the opportunity to study a language as an extracurricular module. The module will not contribute credit to your degree, but you will be expected to take tests. You can choose whether or not you want the marks from your language tests to appear on your final transcript. The cost for adding each 15 credit module to your degree is £284. The fee for 30 credit modules is £530.
