The UCL Centre for Languages & International Education (CLIE) offers a range of 0.5 and 1.0 course units (15 and 30 credits/7.5 and 15 ECTS respectively).

CLIE modules:

  • form part of undergraduate and graduate degree programmes.
  • are open to all current University of London undergraduates and graduates. 

Modules include:

  • Arabic, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Portuguese and Spanish 0.5 and 1.0 course units (15 and 30 credits/7.5 and 15 ECTS respectively).
  • 3 English for Academic Purposes 0.5 course units (15 credits/7.5 ECTS).
  • a TEFL 1.0 course unit (30 credits/15 ECTS).
  • a BSL (British Sign Language) 0.5 course unit (15 credits/7.5 ECTS).

Online timetable/class location

  • Classes are being roomed at the moment, and are gradually appearing in the Online Timetable, with all expected to be online by 23:59 on Sunday 09 October 2016.  This means that until that time you may temporarily see class groups that do not match the one(s) you were allocated to.
  • So long as you submitted your CLIE Course Units Registration Form (either at a Timetabling Session or to the Course Units office) by Wednesday 05 October 2016, you have the module selected on Portico, and you have been allocated to a class/classes, then there is nothing you need to do.
  • If you submitted your Registration Form on Thursday 06 October or Friday 06 October 2016, or have not yet submitted your module selections on Portico, then it may take a bit longer before your allocated class(es) are shown on the Online Timetable.
  • It is not possible under any circumstances to attend or join a group unless you have been officially registered for it by us.

Registration 2016-2017

Late registration is now only possible subject to places being available. If you would like to take a language module and have not yet registered with us then you will need to come to the CLIE Course Units office (26 Bedford Way room 111) at one of the specified times (generally 13:00-14:00 but check the language you are interested in for details).
