About this course

You can study for the CertLang alongside any other degree or take it alone and study part-time. Choose from a wide variety of languages, with options available whether you are a beginner or have prior knowledge.

Use your study of another language to enrich your interests in art history, literature, history, film, music, international relations and politics, linguistics or international business.
