Registration & Language Assessment 

September 2018 Enrolment 

Enrolment will open for assessed modules in September. 

Please note the following: 

  • Check with your home department whether you are eligible to take a language module as part of your degree programme.
  • If you are not eligible to take a language module as part of your programme (for award) you may still wish to register for a module separate from your programme (not for award). When registering for a module not for award students are required to pay the relevant fee. (£450 for 2018/9).
  • Regardless of whether you are a beginner or a non-beginner, or wish to register for the Intercultural Awareness module please complete the online registration form that will soon be available on this page. 

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. 

Please note that at this point you will be registered on a dummy code and not the  actual module you have selected. We will contact you again before September 2018 to confirm you wish to remain on your selected module so you can be allocated to it. 

Additional information 

What do I need to ask my home department before I come?

  • Can I take a MLC module as part of my 120 credits this year? 

  • Can I take a MLC module as additional credits this year? 

  • Can I take a 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?

What do I need to know about studying at the MLC before I sign up?

  • All assessments and exams are compulsory if you are joining an assessed module (formative assessment, oral exam, written exam).

  • Attendance is compulsory for all language classes – there is 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 workbook (£20-£45).

  • There is a strict deadline for withdrawing or changing module after the course has started.
