Language courses for Kingston University staff

Members of staff at the University can join our students and study a modern foreign language for just £80 - £90 (depending on module) per teaching block plus the purchase of the course-text.

One of the goals of the Kingston Language Scheme is to increase the international profile of the University. Foreign languages are essential to reach this goal.

KLS language modules will be delivered through a combination of blended learning (face-to-face at Penrhyn Road, and online virtual classes via MS Teams), face to face and fully-online classes via MS Teams. This will depend on the language module, so please check individual language modules for details. Please note that the advertised times for our language courses may be subject to change.

KLS courses follow a curriculum based on the internationally recognised "European Framework".

Our courses can offer you:

  • the convenience to study a foreign language on campus.
  • the opportunity to study soon after leaving the office.
  • the possibility of meeting other members of staff and students.

Additionally to our main language programme, Kingston Language Scheme offers a range of language courses for a fee, for information please see Language courses for specific purposes or Lunchtime Learning.
