Postgraduate Study


King's Postgraduates

The Modern Language Centre supports the studies of King’s postgraduates by offering free assessed Modules or non-PG-only Courses and a discount on Evening & Saturday Language Courses. 

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

As a postgraduate student, there are four ways you can study a language with the MLC:

  • Assessed Module 'for award' (credit-bearing as part of your degree).  

  • Assessed Module 'not for award' (credit-bearing outside your degree). 

  • PG-only Course (non credit-bearing). 

  • Evening & Saturday Language Courses  

Postgraduate-only Language Courses

In 2018/19, we will offer postgraduate-only courses in 9 languages for King’s postgraduates to study. These include:

Arabic Italian Mandarin
French Japanese Portuguese
German Latin Spanish
