All modules in English

| Modules you need to sign up for | Modules which require no inscription

We offer language courses which can be both in parallel to your study program or integrated into your curriculum. These course are designed to meet the needs of students at university and, later, of professional life and social integration.

The transparency and coherence of our modules is ensured by linking them to current European standards – most notably through our use of the European Language Portfolio for Higher Education.

For more information on our course concept, click here.

Learning a language requires a considerable investment in time and effort, both inside and outside the classroom. Before registering for a module, make sure that you have sufficient time to do the work required.
Remember that if you are placed in a group, you are expected to attend the module on a regular basis and to follow it from start to finish.

Modules which require no inscription

To allow you to learn a language without joining a module, the Language Centre offers on an almost daily basis, free-access periods in the Multimedia Centre. You may go at any time (no need to register), so long as it is a “free-access” period (see times on our homepage), and benefit from resources specially designed for autonomous language study.

The way the Multimedia Centre is organised will allow you to locate activities corresponding to your level and needs, and provide you with information and tools to help you manage your learning.

Someone will always be on hand to help you understand how the Multimedia Centre works and show you how to access material.
