About the Sussex Centre for Language Studies

Our courses are taught by academics working in the Sussex Centre for Language Studies. We offer a wide range of courses and modules throughout the calendar year in English Language Teaching and Modern Foreign Languages. We also offer English language courses for international students.

We recognise that students from disciplines across the University will, as future global citizens, travel, live and work in countries across the world – that's why we've developed a flexible portfolio of language electives which students can take as part of their degree. Students can also study autonomously in our Language Learning Centre, which has a digital language suite and multimedia workstations for the private study of more than 50 world languages.

We believe that learning to speak a second or third language provides a window into another culture, and that cultural awareness and intercultural communication are essential for the promotion of peace, co-operation and understanding in the world today. In addition, the study of a language gives meaningful access to the media, films and literature in that language, opening up limitless paths of discovery.
