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.
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).
- Modern foreign language course units
- 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. Currently Arabic is available at levels 1 to 5 (Business and Current Affairs), Dutch is available at levels 1 to 4 and Portuguese is available at levels 1 to 3.
- Most levels are available as either a 0.5 unit or a 1.0 unit (7.5 or 15 ECTS/15 or 30 graduate credits respectively). A 1.0 unit (15 ECTS/30 graduate credits) is more intensive and enables you to make faster progress and cover more material.
