Languages for all

The University of Hertfordshire offers all students and staff the opportunity to study a language on one of our short beginner’s courses. Learning a language is fun, rewarding and enhances your career prospects and employability. Knowing a foreign language will help to improve your cultural awareness, increase your adaptability, and make you a more confident and effective communicator.

For University of Hertfordshire staff and students the Languages for All courses are free of charge and take place on Wednesday afternoons during the academic year.

Languages for All are not accredited courses. If you are interested in studying languages as part of your degree, join our vibrant community of over 300 students in Humanities and Business School subjects.
