Language courses for students, staff & members of the public
Our philosophy is that anyone who wants to learn a language should be able to do so.
We offer language courses for Durham University students, staff and members of the public. Currently, courses in 18 different languages are available, ranging from Beginners to Higher Advanced level. Our courses are flexible and are offered in a variety of formats and lengths, with start dates throughout the year.
