About the University Language Centre

We provide a wide range of courses and services to the whole of the University of Manchester.

We offer courses in English language and 19 other languages for personal, professional and academic purposes at various levels to prospective and current students and staff of the University and to members of the wider public. Our Full-time English Language courses are accredited by the British Council, through Accreditation UK. Our Pre-sessional courses are also accredited by BALEAP - the Global Forum for EAP Professionals.

We are an examination centre for IELTS, Cambridge, Pitman, Goethe-Institut, Paris Chamber of Commerce and Madrid Chamber of Commerce and can prepare you for these examinations. We are also responsible for the multimedia language learning facilities which serve all of our students and, indeed, all the students of the School of Arts Languages and Cultures' degree programmes.
