Our Language Centre provides English language courses throughout the academic year to all international and European students, to help them develop and build on their English language skills. It also offers short courses in other languages, and all four skills - listening, speaking, reading and writing – are covered.
The Centre offers an intensive English language programme for international and European students who require additional English language skills prior to starting their course.
English language summer schools are another way of getting to know the University and to immerse yourself in the language and culture during the months of July and/or August.
Furthermore, the Centre runs an exciting variety of foreign language courses at differing levels from beginner to advanced, and the courses are open to all students. These are offered in a growing range of languages such as Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish.
Modular courses are worth 20 UK HE credits (10 ECTS) and a Wrexham Glyndŵr University transcript is awarded to all successful students.
Wrexham Glyndŵr University is dedicated to expanding its education provision through the medium of Welsh. The University is proud of its Welsh roots and recognises the importance of reflecting the language and culture of North East Wales.
Under the conditions of the Welsh Language Scheme, the University offers all of its administrative services bilingually. Upon registration, you will be asked in which language you would like to receive correspondence from the University.
The University is also keen to expand and develop its Welsh language provision. Students on every course are entitled to present work as part of an assessment through the medium of Welsh and to sit examinations in Welsh. You must inform us beforehand if you wish to present assessments in Welsh.
Wrexham Glyndŵr University is also host to a branch of the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol. You can become a member of the branch, which is responsible for developing the University’s Welsh language medium opportunities.
The branch offers a variety of different activities throughout the year and works with our Students’ Union to organise Welsh language events. The branch is also a great hub for you to get to know other Welsh speakers here at the University.
