Sussex Centre for Language Studies

Courses commencing in October 2017

Our main programme of courses runs for 20 weeks from the start of October, and includes classes at different levels in Arabic, British Sign Language, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Mandarin Chinese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

These language courses are aimed at the general public and held on the University of Sussex campus near Brighton, offering the opportunity to study a language within the context of its culture on a weekly basis alongside students, postgraduates, and members of the university staff.

Each class lasts for one and a half hours, either in the middle of the day or in the evening.

Enrolment for these courses is CLOSED.

Unless otherwise noted:

  • Dates:
    • Courses begin in week commencing Monday 2 October 2017 and end w/c 4 December 2017 for an initial 10 weeks
      (NB: some courses may be delayed by one week if numbers are not sufficient, or if one week needs to be cancelled. In this case the courses would end end w/c 11 December).
    • Courses recommence week commencing Monday 5 February 2018 and end w/c 23 April 2017 for the remaining 10 weeks
    • Easter break: Monday 26 March to Friday 6 April 2018
  • Duration: 20 weeks*, meeting for 1.5 hours per week
  • Price: £230 (£220 concessions)
  • Please read our general information document about the open courses.

* It may be possible to extend the classes for a further 6 weeks into the summer term if a sufficient number of people are interested. In this case, an additional fee is payable. The 6 week extension of the language courses will take place between the months of April and June. We will post more details about the 6-week extensions on this site closer to the time.

If a course becomes full, email opencourses@sussex.ac.uk if you wish to be added to the waiting list in case someone drops out or another group session is opened.
