Sussex Centre for Language Studies

English language courses

The Sussex Centre for Language Studies runs language courses all year round for adult learners who wish to reach a high standard of English.

We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Sussex, one of the UK's leading universities. While many of our students are preparing to enter undergraduate or postgraduate degrees at universities where the language of instruction is English, others come to Sussex to improve their English language skills for career purposes. All our students have one thing in common: they are serious about making as much progress as possible.
