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

Enrolment for not-for-credit and self funded students

To apply for courses in Chinese, Korean, and Japanese, you can apply online by completing the SEAS LFA enrolment form. Once you have submitted the form, the SEAS office will contact you to confirm which module you are pre-registered for or, if necessary, invite you to come for an interview with a Language Teacher who will assess your language level. We will also confirm which steps you need to take to finalise your enrolment.

By completing the online enrolment form you are not guaranteed a place on your chosen module.
