The UCL Centre for Languages & International Education (CLIE) (formerly Language Centre) offers a range of 0.5 and 1.0 course units (15 and 30 credits) which form part of undergraduate and graduate degree programmes and are open to all current University of London undergraduates and graduates. Courses include Arabic, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin and Spanish 1.0 and 0.5 course units as well as three English for Academic Purposes 0.5 course units and a TEFL 1.0 course unit.
A summary of the courses we offer is below; full information can be found in the menu on the left.
Class details are shown on the UCL Online Timetable. Provided you have completed registration (i.e. had an interview with a language tutor, submitted your completed Registration Form to us, selected the module on Portico and submitted all your module selections) then you will see your class(es) in your personal timetable.
Courses available for 2012-2013
Modern foreign language course units
Arabic, Dutch, French,
German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin and Spanish.
Seven levels from complete beginners (syllabus A) to advanced (syllabus D) and post-A level (Business and Current Affairs; Current Affairs and Culture (Social, Historical and Political); Professional Purposes II; Academic Purposes II; Translation Skills). We also offer French for Art Historians and Italian for Art Historians at intermediate level. Please note that Arabic is currently only available at levels 1 to 3, Dutch is available at levels 1 to 4, and Mandarin is available at levels 1 to 5 (Business and Current Affairs).
Most levels are available as either a 1.0 unit or a 0.5 unit (30 or 15 credits). A 1.0 unit (30 credits) is more intensive and enables you to make faster progress and cover more material.

English Language Skills for Academic Purposes [LCEN6001] – 0.5 course unit.
Academic Writing in English for Non-Native Speakers [LCEN6801] – 0.5 course unit.
Academic Writing in English for Native Speakers [LCEN6802] – 0.5 course unit.
TEFL course unit
TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) [LCTE7900] – 1.0 course unit.
This initial teacher training course will help you acquire the skills
you need if you plan to teach English abroad as part of your degree, or
if you wish to teach English after you have finished your studies. On
completion of the course you will receive a teaching certificate, validated by
UCL, in addition to your module credit as part of your degree programme. In addition, the course provides you with
the opportunity to complete the course with a CELTA (Certificate in English
Language Teaching to Adults) awarded by Cambridge ESOL.
Further information is available here and in the LCTE7900: TEFL 1.0 Course Unit Brochure.
