We offer two types of courses to enable Durham University researchers to acquire foreign language skills.
The Language Programme in support of research is developing organically based on demand, and at the present time is concentrated on the provision of Reading Skills courses to aid scholarly research using text-based materials, in French, German, and Spanish. There is also scope to deliver language learning for all communicative skills in a number of other languages. This latter language learning would be offered either through access to existing course provision to other taught students or potentially on a bespoke basis as part of an identified training need. We are interested to learn more about the language learning needs of our colleagues and researchers across the University.
If you are looking for a course that is right for you (including in a language, at a level or in a language skills not shown), please contact Mark Critchley, Director of CFLS, to discuss further (firstname.lastname@example.org).
