The application process for the spring semester 2016/17 is now open

You can join a language module as a credit student. This means that it will be part of your degree course profile. For further information please contact your course director.

You can also join a language module as a non-credit student. This means that you can study the module outside your course profile.  A UEA Certificate of Attendance is given on successful completion of a module, if requested. Failure to complete all the work precludes students from getting a certificate but DOES NOT in any way affect students' degree credits and marks, when this module is taken outside the credit system.  

Both UG and PG students can apply as well as staff.

The application process for the spring semester 2016/17 is now open. If you would like to apply to take a non-credit daytime language module, please fill out the application form and submit it to ulp@uea.ac.uk in PDF or Word format only or alternatively, you can bring it to the PPL School Office in Arts 1, Room 0.33, University of East Anglia, Norwich, NR4 7TJ

Deadline for applications is Friday 16th December 2016


UEA staff & students/INTO students/Research Park Employees: £150 (£250 for two modules). 

All PPL students and first year undergraduate HUM students may have one free module per semester.

Please note that Post A-Level modules are £175 each (£300 for two Post A-level modules and £275 for a Post A-level module and a second non-post A-Level module)

All fees include the use of the language resource centre but you may have to purchase a text book.

Language levels

Each module consists of 3 hours of classes per week over the semester, plus approximately 10 hours a week personal study. There are 3 different levels:

Beginners level (A1 in the CEFRL)

Intermediate level (A2 in the CEFRL)

Post A level (B1 in the CEFRL)

Each language level consists of two modules which may be taken individually if desired.

Continuation language modules require a certain level of competence of that language which may need to be assessed by the tutor before enrolment. If you have studied the language before, please let us know.

Start dates

The spring semester begins week commencing 16 January 2017.


Please note that non-credit students will be enrolled in modules, together with students taking the modules for credit, and the same amount of dedication and engagement is required. If non-credit students miss two consecutive seminars with no justification, they will be automatically withdrawn from the module.

The language choices will be subject to availability and it will depend on the vacancies available for each module. Credit students will have priority.
