We offer Arabic, French, German, Japanese, Mandarin and Spanish.

We use an innovative approach to teaching languages, using the latest teaching methods and technologies together with all that is best in a more traditional approach to language teaching. We offer a friendly and professional service together with excellent facilities (multi-media language laboratories and interactive whiteboards), and our well-qualified and experienced staff will help you achieve a high level of communication in your chosen language, in both every day and professional situations, and for all levels from beginners (A1) to advanced level (C1).

We are very sorry for the delay in processing language scholarship applications. This is due to an unavoidable reduction in the administrative team during the summer months. We are working to process the applications and offer those students who are selected a language course beginning in January and lasting through Semester 2. We appreciate that this is unsatisfactory for all students and apologise on behalf of the university.


In line with QMUL's commitment to offer students a multidisciplinary education, a number of scholarships are available each year to undergraduate students who wish to learn a language in addition to their main programme of study (this scheme will be extended in future years and opened to postgraduate students). Students can apply for a scholarship for one module of language per year, involving one two-hour class per week across both semesters. This module will be non-credit bearing and will not contribute towards your degree result.

Following a successful first round in June, we are delighted to announce a further opportunity to apply for a language scholarship for 2018-19.
