The Language Centre courses are open to all members of the EUI, including partners and visiting academics. Please note that the first time you enrol in a language centre course you must show your EUI card to the Language Centre Assistant. 

Administrative staff members should check Courses for Staff before enrolling in a course.

At the end of a course, you may request a certificate of attendance.

When are courses offered?

The teaching calendar is divided into 4 blocks designed to fit with departmental seminar timetables. Some courses carry on throughout the year. Others are offered for one term only.

Language Centre Calendar
 Pre-sessional courses  September   four weeks
 First term  October-December  eight weeks
 Second term January-Easter   ten weeks
 Third term  Easter-June  six weeks


What are the regulations for following language courses?

  • All fees must be paid before starting a course.
  • You must attend at least 80% of a course.
  • If you fail to attend courses regularly for two terms, you won't be able to follow any more language courses.

  • Where there are an insufficient number of participants, courses may be cancelled.

We ask that you respect these regulations as there are considerable costs involved in setting up a course, including administration, internal and external personnel costs, placement testing, etc.
