Learn a language to boost your CV and life skills!


Have you ever wondered how amazing it would be to learn another language? Or have you ever thought to yourself, ‘I’d love to speak another language’ or work abroad? If the answer to any of these questions is YES, then this post is for you!

Unknown to many, here at Newcastle EVERY single student from every discipline has the opportunity to learn another language FOR FREE. When I heard about this, my initial reaction was, you’re kidding, right? Well they weren’t. The University Wide Languages Programme (UWLP) allows students to take extra-curricular modules from beginners and intermediate classes for languages including French, Spanish, German, Japanese, Mandarin, Chinese and more! Even if you have had absolutely no experience in a subject, you can sign up and start from scratch.

If extra lessons aren’t your thing, then contact the Language Resource Centre, where now self-study language learning is available in (what I believe to be) the most beautiful room in the whole of Newcastle University. Membership for NU students is also completely free. And it is right next to the Percy building.

Check them out now!!

What are you waiting for? Sign up now or even secure yourself a space for the next semester to avoid disappointment!
