Evening language courses

Languages

Languages

Our extracurricular evening classes are open to Exeter and Falmouth University Students, Staff, Alumni (for a discount) and members of the public. Most courses take place online and some take place on campus, but we do not currently offer hybrid courses, i.e a mix of online and on campus. In line with current University policy, we can only accept enrolments for those aged 18 or over with the exception of our "Step-into" courses.

We offer language courses from Beginners to Advanced level. To help you find the right course we have a guide for choosing the correct level of language study

We are now in the process of updating our website for our next intake from 29th April 2024.

A range of beginner and continuation courses will be open for registration from 1st March 2024.

Please contact elp@exeter.ac.uk if you have any queries.

 

Timetable for 2023/24 courses
