Foreign Language Centre
The Foreign Language Centre (FLC) is based on the Streatham Campus. We provide a range of language courses, including daytime undergraduate modules as part of your main degree and a certificated Evening Language Programme, which has a fee. Whatever your degree, you can benefit from learning languages during your time here at Exeter.
Hundreds of students from all subjects across the University choose to take language modules as part of their degree. You can choose to learn a completely new language, or to improve one you have studied before. Modules are available at a range of levels from beginners to advanced in:
French ▪ German ▪ Italian ▪ Japanese ▪ Mandarin Chinese ▪ Portuguese ▪ Spanish
If you have relevant prior language learning, we offer fast-track modules which enable you to progress to a higher level more quickly. We also have languages ‘for business’ that help you develop your knowledge of the language in a business context.
All our undergraduate modules are assessed and count for credits towards your main degree. You might take our modules as an option (where your degree programme allows this) or to help you prepare for study in a foreign country (for example, on a ‘with European Study’ degree or for an Erasmus exchange).
Employers are increasingly looking for graduates across all subjects who have additional language skills. To help your employability, you can choose to have the language modules you study with the FLC named in your degree title, for example ‘BA History with proficiency in Spanish’. To achieve this, you must successfully complete a minimum of 60 credits in one language
