Who can enrol in a course?


Please note that the first time you enrol in a language centre course you must show your EUI card to the Language Centre Assistant.

Enrolment Procedure


The teaching calendar consists of a pre-sessional period and three terms. 

You must enrol in a course before attending a session. You may enrol at any time, but if the term is part-way through we encourage you to contact the teacher first. If you enrol in a course which is already full, you will be placed on a waiting list. 

For those who have access to the PDM, a request must be inserted before each term.

First-year researchers are assigned to, and automatically enrolled in, English and Italian courses for the pre-sessional courses in September. 

Where there is an insufficient number of participants, the course will close. 

You should regularly check the language pages for the latest information.

 

Please note that the first time you enrol in a language centre course you must show your EUI card to the Language Centre Assistant.
 

 

 Attendance Regulations 

Attendance is compulsory once you have enrolled in a course. If you cannot attend a session for work-related, medical, or family reasons, you must justify your absence with your teacher. If you want to withdraw, please write to the Language Centre Assistant.
