Sussex Centre for Language Studies

12-week courses commencing in January 2022

In addition to our main 20-week courses we also offer 12-week courses from January. These are mostly courses at lower levels, in Arabic, British Sign Language, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish (various levels).

COVID-19 update – We will be continuing to teach online during the Spring Term (Jan-Apr/May) 2022
We had hoped to return to on-campus teaching from January, but considering the ongoing uncertainties surrounding the covid pandemic we have taken the decision to continue online until the end of the Spring Term 2022 (April/May). We are committed to ensuring safety as well as stability for all our staff and students. All our 20-week and 12-week courses will be delivered online. Our hope is to return to in-person teaching in the Autumn Term 2022 and welcome you back to our beautiful campus!
