The Language Centre offers English and English Plus courses to students from all over the world and also supports the International full-time students at the University. We are located in the University headquarters building in central London.
As a student at The Language Centre you can experience university life, even if you are here for just a few weeks. You can choose courses of General English or Academic English, English for Specific Purposes, English for Exam Preparation or our unique English Plus programmes. English Plus courses combine General English classes at The Language Centre with practical art, fashion, design or communication courses at the Colleges (see page 18).
