Centre for Language Study
We provide a wide range of language learning courses and resources, for students.
You’ll start at a level that matches your ability, in your chosen language. Our courses are tailored to your needs.
As a specialist linguist, whether you want to further your language studies after an A-Level or start a language ab-initio, we will help you to reach graduate level and get the language focus you want. Depending on your degree programme, language modules will form between 25% to 75% of your degree.
If you're studying another subject at the University, you can join us and learn a language for credits as part of your degree, if your programme allows for it. If it does not, come and take advantage of our unique Southampton Language Opportunity scheme. This offers free (non-credit bearing) language courses to all University of Southampton students.
If you’re part of the local community or a member of staff, we can offer you the chance to learn a language through our Lifelong Learning programme.
You'll also have excellent resources to support you. By joining our community of language learners, you'll take advantage of our ambitious language teaching. We'll give you the tools to become the best linguist you possibly can.
