How to make the most of the Language Centre

Whether you’re an international student looking for additional support with your English, interested in taking a degree option or want to learn or improve another language, the Language Centre (Floor 7, Clare Market Building) is here to help.  

How to sign up for English insessional support

If English is not your first language, we are on hand to give you advice when you arrive at LSE. This support continues throughout your programme of study. It is free and starts as soon as your course does!

Every student who needs support should register for their Academic cluster as soon as they can. These support classes are complemented throughout the year in a variety of ways. To get started have a read through the information on English Insessional Support| and make sure you go along to one of the EAP (English for Academic Purposes) Information Sessions for your Department|.

How to decide on an undergraduate degree option

We offer a range of Modern Foreign Language| and Literature| degree option courses for undergraduate students as well as a Linguistics| option. Registration is via the LSE for You course choice system but there is more information at the links above.

How to register for an extra-curricular foreign language course

Our Modern Foreign Language Certificate Course programme| offers you the option of taking an extra curricular language course whilst at LSE. Take a look at the information on How to Register| to find out what you need to do to take a course.

How to claim a free place on our MFL certificate course programme

As part of the LSE Language Policy|, if you are a UK/EU undergraduate student at LSE please remember you can claim your entitlement to a free language course during your time at LSE if you do not have a GCSE grade C (or equivalent) in a language which is not your mother tongue. You will need to make this declaration when you come to register otherwise please follow the normal registration procedure| to choose your course.

Please remember English is a foreign language if it is not your mother tongue!

How to find our about learning support
