Please note that the application for our language courses have now closed for the academic year 2020/2021.
If you have made an application, please don't worry if you haven't heard back from us yet. We will be in contact with you before the course begins to let you know if we are able to offer you a place.
In the interest of fairness, we place students on courses using a 'lottery system'.
Applicants who followed the correct application procedure before the deadline have been entered into the lottery. However, no one is guaranteed a place on a language course regardless of how early they apply, what programme stage they are in, etc. (Please also see the 'Languages outside your degree' tab under "What happens if a course is oversubscribed")
Our current language classes and cultural modules
The Centre for Language Studies offers three broad categories of course plus Study Abroad and Exchange Programme modules.
Languages as part of your degree (LSP/LBM)
These language modules are taken for credit and offered as tailor-made courses in degree programmes focused on preparing students to work in a globalised workplace.
Free languages for City students and staff (LGP)
These courses are part of a wide-ranging programme of language courses offered at no cost to all students and members of staff at City.
Extracurricular Language Courses (Business School Undergraduates)
The extracurricular courses in languages are taught in the context of Business within the target cultures. They are designed for Business School undergraduate students to learn a foreign language as a free standing module and do not provide any credit towards their degree.

This programme offers courses for exchange and study abroad students. These students can take a language course as well as the following cultural programmes:
- Performing Arts in London
- Historic London
- European Business Culture
