Language Evening Classes

The University of Nottingham Language Centre runs a successful programme of classes that is open to the public, University staff and students.

Full information on the languages, levels and course content is below.

  • Our next full programme of evening classes begin in October 2019.
  • Enrolment for those classes will open in August 2019.




How will I study?

Our classes offer an excellent learning environment, with small groups and a friendly atmosphere.

Class size varies between 10 and 22 students, facilitating interaction between students and the tutor. The target language will be used as often as possible. Many of our tutors are native speakers and all are highly experienced and qualified to deliver high quality language classes. 

If you find yourself on a level that is too easy or too difficult, you are welcome to move to a different level provided there are spaces available. If you are unable to attend the different level, we will provide you with a refund of the course fees.

It may be necessary to purchase a text book to support your studies. Details of the text book will be provided in the first class.

There is the option of taking a voluntary assessment at the end of the spring term for all languages. Students who pass the voluntary assessment may receive a certificate of achievement. University of Nottingham students who are taking the evening classes as part of the  Nottingham Advantage Award are required to take a compulsory assessment at the end of the spring term, as well as completing a reflective portfolio.

We are unable to offer academic credits for completing the evening classes.

How much do classes cost?

There are two sets of fees for the majority of evening classes.

  • University of Nottingham Students: £240 (paid in two instalments of £120)
  • Staff and Members of the Public: £260 (paid in two instalments of £130) plus an additional £10 exam fee. Please note the exam is optional.

Unfortunately we are unable to offer any more discounts of reductions on these fees.
