Learn a language at Sussex
If you’ve ever wanted to learn a new language, or revisit a language you learned in the past, our lunchtime and evening classes might be perfect for you.
Our language short courses are open to everyone, from Sussex students and staff to members of the public (aged 18 and over). Build your confidence in communicating in your chosesn language through games, media, and immersive teaching. You’ll join a diverse group of learners who are passionate about languages, want to stand out to future employers, or wish to communicate better with friends, relatives, or when travelling.
These short courses are offered at a variety of levels and include languages such as French, Mandarin Chinese and Arabic. We also offer a short course in British Sign Language (BSL).
We offer 20-week courses (running October-April) and shorter 12-week courses (usually starting in January).

Important: Most of our language short courses are taught in person on our campus. However we also offer a selection of online courses. These will be indicated on each language page where applicable.
