The Modern Language Centre supports the studies of King’s postgraduate students by offering credit-bearing modules as well as non credit-bearing modules (PG-only) free of charge, 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 of your degree).
- PG-only Course (non-credit-bearing).
- Evening & Saturday Language Courses

Support for students
The MLC strives to ensure all students studying a language have a positive experience at King’s as we understand that postgraduate studies can be demanding. We ensure support is widely available to all MLC PG students. The Language Resources Centre offers a wide range of language learning materials, as well as free speaking practice with a native speaker to improve oral skills. Visit the Language Resources Centre
