Modern Language Centre courses

As well as offering all King's students a discount on Evening & Saturday Language Courses, the Modern Language Centre supports the studies of our postgraduate students by offering credit-bearing modules and non credit-bearing modules (PG-only) free of charge.

Learning a language as a postgraduate student will encourage you to develop the ways in which you learn and retain information. The MLC's postgraduate-only courses focus on reading and speaking skills and revolve around the student's own research.
