Optional language module for credits 

University students from all disciplines take courses in the Language Centre, located in the Trent Building, University Park Campus. Courses can count towards undergraduate degrees.
 

Optional language modules for students of all disciplines

We offer all languages from beginners' level. The finishing level varies from Stage 2, to Stage 6 which aims for near-native competence.

We focus on providing language training with the emphasis on communication. At the higher stages teaching and learning supports professionals working in a bilingual context, incorporating a number of transferable skills much sought after by potential employers.

Credits or fee paying

Each module is credit-bearing which contributes to the full credits required for core undergraduate programmes of study.

If space is available within a teaching group, modules can be studied outside of an undergraduate programme for a fee of £130 per semester. This enables you to take the modules as part of your Nottingham Advantage Award.

Who can take optional language modules?

These modules are predominantly taken by University of Nottingham undergraduate students alongside their core programme of study. However, postgraduate students and members of staff are able to participate subject to places and payment of the module fees.
