The MLTC welcomes all language learners, but enrolment options and ways vary depending on who you are and/or the scheme under which you would want to enroll. We also offer guidance as to which level would best suit you. Please read the information below carefully before applying.

Apply now

Applications for the Spring Semester 2021/22 are now closed.

Applications for the Autumn Semester 2022/23 will open at 10am on the 9th of September 2022. To register your interest for an MLTC course, go to this page and fill out the Registration of Interest form. 

Am I eligible?

Yes, you are:

  • Most MLTC language courses are open to all learners:
    • University of Sheffield students taking the course for credits or not, staff, and members of the public.
    • We are happy to consider applications from those under the age of 16, with acceptance subject to the discretion of the Head of Centre.
  • A few, more specialized courses may have more restricted access, and this is clearly indicated in individual module descriptions. (e.g. Tandem, Project, Year Abroad modules, etc.)Europe’ only.
Which language(s) should I choose?

The answer comes down to your personal affinities with the language and culture, really, but we will be happy to offer individual guidance.

Which level is right for me?

The level most suitable to you will depend on your existing knowledge (if any) of the language. Individual module descriptions (as found in the Languages section) provide standard descriptions of entry levels for each module:

  • If you have a standard qualification and/or grade, such as an A-level, you will be placed in the corresponding module.  
  • If your qualifications and/or experience do not quite fit into the standard entry requirements, you will be invited to attend a brief interview with a language coordinator, who will then ensure you are placed in the right level.

Please also note:

  • MLTC courses are designed so that the first couple of weeks in the Autumn semester act as a refresher. If, after these first two weeks, you feel that the level you have been placed in is not right for you, you should speak to your course tutor about the possibility of changing your level and we we will aim to accommodate it should it be validated by your course tutor and should a place be available on that module. If we cannot accommodate the change, your enrolment on the module will be cancelled and any fee you may have paid refunded.
