Evening language courses

The University of St Andrews offers evening language courses throughout the academic year. Courses are offered to students at all levels of study, from beginners to advanced learners.

The evening language courses last for ten weeks, and as a student, you will attend one class per week. All classes last for 2 hours.

Students should note that the modules offered in the evening language courses are not part of any degree pathway and may not be used as credit counting towards a degree programme.

How to book a place

Follow these steps to book a place in one of our evening language courses:

1. Look at the course descriptions and the level of study guidance below to estimate your level in the language you are interested in. This is especially important if you are not a beginner and have not taken an evening language course at the University of St Andrews before. If you are unsure what your level is, you can email eveninglanguage@st-andrews.ac.uk to discuss this with a tutor.

2. Check the Timetable for Semester 1 2022-2023 (PDF) to make sure your course is available. The majority of our evening language courses are in-person but some are online. Online courses are marked on the timetable.

3. Have your University username and student ID number ready, you will need them to make a booking.

The booking deadline is Friday 23 September 2022, 5pm. You should book early to secure your place as there are limited spaces available on each course.
