Languages for all
Languages for all is a programme by the University of Essex that provides its students with the ability to study a language alongside their degree, regardless of their discipline or stage.
All Essex students are eligible for one year of language tuition at no additional cost and additional tuition in subsequent years is available at a moderate fee. Languages for All does not affect students’ grades in their core degrees and is designed to fit alongside a busy student schedule. It aims to encourage language learning among students in order to increase the following skills: language proficiency, employability, the confidence required for students to work, travel and study internationally and intercultural awareness.
The programme was started in 2012/13 and has been very successful, gaining high approval rates from users.
