Language Centre

The Language Centre at Wrexham Glyndŵr University has just celebrated its 10th anniversary! ‘This is a good time to reflect on and celebrate our developments and significant expansion since October 2007’ says Dr. Leila Luukko-Vinchenzo, Head of the Centre. 

Student numbers and the range of language programmes taken by our course participants have developed from year to year, and our programme portfolio keeps on responding to demand and market needs. We now offer courses from 1 month to 1 year, in English and in a selected range of languages – always listening to requests from our client base, from local to global.

In English we now offer courses at almost all levels, of almost any length, and with many start dates throughout the year. Our English language summer schools in July and August attract students from both our long-term partner institutions year after year, as well as returning students who have progressed with us from near-beginners to advanced. These returns to and continuations with us are our strongest evidence of success!

In a set of European languages (including plentiful cultural contents) we offer classes for total beginners in the language, and in Spanish for post-beginners as well. It is important to remember that if you cannot find a course that suits your needs, we can always design courses for individuals or groups as well. 

Tuition is carried out by a growing number of highly qualified and experienced lecturers, and many of our courses include excursions to local places of interest such as Chester and Liverpool, as well as the beautiful scenery of North Wales.

We are proud to serve Wrexham Glyndŵr University students and staff, the general public as well as corporate and commercial clients in and around Wrexham, North East Wales and beyond. In fact our English language programmes attract participants from across the world.

We offer intensive courses in English at many levels, from short courses to 11 months, with and without end-of-course exams. We are flexible so you choose your course! Whilst you’ll always improve your English, we can also prepare you for an IELTS or Password exam if you need or wish to take an internationally recognised English language exam, also accepted by UKVI. The choice is yours! Please view our course portfolio by clicking on the links below.

If you are planning to apply, or have already gained an offer of a place for an academic programme at Wrexham Glyndŵr University and your offer requires you to enhance your English language competence prior to starting your course, then you are invited to view our pre-sessional course portfolio. Please choose the course suited to your needs by considering  a) your current level of English  and b) your required level of English; and then apply in connection with your academic programme application accordingly.

Our International Foundation Year will improve your English and prepare you for an undergraduate degree in Business, Computing or Engineering.

The Language Centre also delivers courses in German, Italian and Spanish, aimed at complete beginners - and additionally Spanish courses for post-beginners. See our European Language courses for more information on how to enrol.

We design individual courses for professionals abroad wishing to improve their English language skillsat a University setting in Wales, over varying lengths of time (from a long weekend to a few weeks or months). Our courses for English language teachers and corporate clients are also personalised, and with or without end-of-course assessment. We are looking forward to your request for a tailor-made proposal based on your individual or group’s needs.
