Open Language Programme

Why study this course?

Our Open Language Programme course is aimed at individuals looking to learn or develop their knowledge of a language. There are a number of part-time modules that will help you develop these skills using a wide variety of teaching methods. Available at different levels, from beginner to advanced, each course combines face-to-face teaching with access to online materials and activities.

Open all

The courses we offer include Arabic, Arabic Business, Advanced English for Work and Study, Business English, English Language Advanced and Proficiency, French, German, Spanish and Spanish for Business and Work. These courses are Extension of Knowledge modules and can be taken as part of your undergraduate studies here at London Met or as stand-alone courses by members of the public.

Undergraduate students

If the structure of your course allows you to take an Extension of Knowledge module or an optional language module, you can opt to study a language through the Open Language Programme. To register for the Open Language Programme, ensure you have recorded the generic language Open Language Programme module code OL0000 as part of your programme of study, either online or on a module registration form. Once your programme has been approved, come along to one of our evaluation sessions to complete your enrolment. If you don't have the option to take an Extension of Knowledge module, you can sign up for the Open Language Programme as a paying student. Students who take an Open Language Programme module as a stand-alone course will receive a certificate of attendance only.

Members of the public

All our Open Language Programme courses are open to fee-paying members of the public. You'll be learning alongside university students and have access to all the learning resources the University has to offer.

Assessment

Students are assessed by a variety of assessment tools such as tests, exams, coursework, essays and presentations.
