March 2017 Assessment & Pre-registration Sessions
If you would like to study a language module taught by the Modern Language Centre module in 2017-18, you can pre-register in March 2017.
Come along to our Assessment & Pre-registration Sessions!
When? 13.00 - 18.00 on Wednesday 22 and Thursday 23 March 2017
Check our assessment timetable to see when assessments are available for your chosen language.
Where? Language Resources Centre (First Basement, King’s Building, Strand Campus)
Who can attend?
These sessions are only for undergraduate students studying medicine, Bioscience degrees and degrees in the Faculty of Arts & Humanities. As this is a pilot, we cannot accept other students.
What will happen?
We will do a short language assessment to determine your level and we will help you with selecting the appropriate module.
Why come now?
We also run registration in Welcome Week every September but you stand a better chance of getting onto your first choice module if you come in March.
What modules are available?
See our list of modules for 2017-18 and our undergraduate timetable for 2017-18 Find more details in our module descriptions.
What if I’m already taking an MLC module?
If you are currently studying an MLC module and wish to continue to the next language stage next year, you are also encouraged to attend and register early to avoid disappointment.
What do I need to ask my home department before I come?
- Can I take an MLC module as part of my 120 credits next year?
- Can I take an MLC module as additional credits next year?
- Can I take an MLC linguistics module or only a language module?
- If necessary, can I take a module at a lower credit level than is normal for my year?
- If necessary, can I take a module at a higher credit level than is normal for my year?
Do I need to know my timetable before I come?
Medics and Bioscience students need to know your timetable before you come so that you know which MLC class you can join.
What do I need to know about studying at the MLC before I sign up?
- All assessments and exams are compulsory (formative assessment, oral exam, written exam).
- Attendance is compulsory for all language classes – there’s no lecture capture!
- You should expect to do 4-10 hours of self-study a week.
- You will need to buy a course textbook and work book (£20-£45).
- There is a strict deadline for withdrawing or changing module after the course starts. See the registration form for more information.
We look forward to seeing you in March in the Language Resources Centre!
