Staff and members of the public

Our courses are open to all members of the public and university staff members.


We have a wide choice of languages for you to study at various levels. Levels range from Beginner to Proficient, with less advanced levels offering a variety of class times so that you can attend at a time that suits you.

It’s a really nice place to study, the classes themselves are nice and small so you get lots of individual attention. I think it’s quite different from doing nighttime online lessons as you are there with the tutors and you get to build a proper relationship with them.
