The Centre for Language Studies provides a wide-range of modern language courses as part of students’ degree and as an extra-curricular activity. We also offer cultural modules to study abroad and exchange students.
Language Studies were introduced to City University in 1990 to:
- present languages across the curriculum
- provide language support for international students
- develop external language activities and links with professional bodies.
In 2009 Language Studies was re-organised and two Centres were created. One for the study of Translation and the other, the present Centre for Language Studies as a provider of foreign language programmes across the Institution.
The Centre for Language Studies is part of the School of Arts and Social Sciences (SASS). We provide a wide range of language courses across the university, for credit and as an extracurricular activity. We also run cultural modules, mainly to study abroad and exchange students.
Research and development
The Centre staff's research interests focus on Educational Research, particularly on policies within Higher Education, their effects on teaching and learning, assessment of language skills and the use of technology to this effect.
