Foreign Language Centre

The Foreign Language Centre at the University of Exeter is a great place to learn a language, whether for study, work or just for fun. As well as first-class learning resources, we provide excellent teaching by suitably qualified and experienced professionals, so that learning a language is both enjoyable and rewarding.

At the FLC we offer daytime credit-bearing modules as part of your undergraduate studies. The languages we offer include British Sign Language, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish. All the FLC Undergraduate modules count for credits towards your degree, and are only available to Exeter undergraduate students.

Our Evening Language Programme offers a range of language courses for students, staff, alumni, the public and business. Unlike the daytime language modules, these courses are NOT credit-bearing, so you can take them outside your degree programme. The Evening Language courses include Arabic, British Sign Language (BSL), Catalan, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Mandarin Chinese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish.

We are a DELF/DALF, DELE and PLIDA Accredited Examination Centre for French, Spanish and Italian and we are also a member of the Association of University Language Centres, AULC.
