How will I know what language level to start at?

  • Beginner level students do not need to attend a level assessment session. Once you have completed the form online it will be processed by the MLC team.
  • If you are not a complete beginner in your preferred language, we will do a short language assessment to help you determine your level and the appropriate module for you. Assessment dates have been scheduled for 21st and 22nd March 2018, 13.00-18.00 in the Language Resources Centre (LRC), King’s Building, 1st basement.
