LSE Language Policy

Launched on Friday 22 October 2010 we are delighted that LSE has now adopted this Language Policy as outlined below.

  • An exhortation to learn a language by the LSE Director
  • Getting greater departmental buy-in to the idea of language learning
  • Branding LSE as not just a multi-national university but also a multi-lingual one
  • Clear statements of support for languages in all relevant promotional materials
  • Stressing the importance of language skills not only for employability but also for intellectual value
  • Offering a free MFL Certificate Course to UK/EU undergraduate students who do not have a GCSE Grade C or equivalent in a foreign language that is not their mother tongue
