Language Centre

The Language Centre

The Language Centre organises a variety of language courses to meet the needs of students and staff.

Emphasis is placed on self-directed study, in which students manage all the main aspects of their learning with the support of an instructor. Students set their own goals, choose their own learning methods, and work with materials related to their interests or areas or expertise. In this way, language instruction is personalised to suit the needs of each and every student.
