Are you involved in advising students on "free choice" courses?

26 Apr 2007

Information available on 2007/08 University-wide Language Programme (LEAP)

The University-wide Language Programme, otherwise known as LEAP, offers a wide range of courses to students across the university wishing to learn a language or to improve their current language skills. Courses can be taken as part of an UG degree in exchange for credits (so called 'free choice' units).

We offer a total of 16 languages at different levels (from ab initio to post-A level), most of which are worth 20 credits. We are in the process of finalising details for enrolment for AY 2007/08.
