Information on not-for-credit enrolment in the university's language learning scheme.

Off

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the School of East Asian Studies is unable to offer any languages for all teaching for academic year 2020/21. We hope to be able to offer our full languages for all programme again for the 2021/22 academic year.

Undergraduate students

At the School of East Asian Studies we offer Chinese, Japanese and Korean language on a not-for-credit basis through the Languages for All scheme. Students who would like to learn a language in addition to their degree programme may take a language module as a not-for-credit, Languages for All self-funded student or as a not-for-credit, Languages for All fee-waiver student (not all students are eligible for this option).

Postgraduate taught (PGT) students

Postgraduate taught (PGT) students may enrol on SEAS language modules as a not-for-credit, self-funded student.

If your degree programme offers unrestricted credits (these are credits you may use outside your home department) and you don’t wish to use them to study one of our languages, you can still take one of our languages on as a not-for-credit self-funded student through the Languages for All scheme.

See the Languages for All website for more information
