Language Training

The University Language Centre supports the teaching and learning of languages throughout the University. It does so flexibly in accordance with the needs of its users; it uses IT to underpin its operations and its activities are informed by relevant research in second language acquisition and educational technology.

For students in our School, The School of Humanities and Social Sciences, some Language training is covered. This usually includes:

  • Academic reading skills courses delivered by the Language Centre. The Schools of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences have agreed to provide funding to ensure this area of language training is free for graduate students within the two Schools.
  • Supported self-study in the John Trim Centre and Language Advice sessions are free of charge

Some MPhils within the Faculty require students to undertake Language Training as part of the MPhil and where this is the case this training is paid for by the School. Generally this applies to Early Modern History, Modern European History and World History.
