Languages for All is a key part of our commitment to internationalism in education and industry, and can help equip our students for international (work or study) placements.
Language skills are in increasing demand for employers and contribute to Aston graduates success in the national and international jobs market – as well as offering personal, cultural and social benefits that can last a lifetime.
You can learn Arabic, French, German, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Portuguese or Spanish. Courses are available at beginner, intermediate or advanced level.
Under the Languages for All scheme we have two different options available for our students to study a language alongside or as part of their degree. Click the headings below to learn which option is the best match for you.
This option is available for eligible first year fee-paying undergraduate students, All these modules are free of cost and taken for full academic year (two hours of teaching per week).
Taking Languages for All modules outside your degree won't affect your final degree classification or earn you degree credits. However, upon successfully completing the programme you will be given an Aston Modular Award.
The modules are available in your first year of study, and cannot be transferred into subsequent years of study.
If you are an International fee-paying student, enrolling on an undergraduate degree, you are eligible to apply for the Languages for All programme in your first year of study if you meet the following English Language requirements:
If your qualification does not appear in the list above please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for advice on the suitability of your qualification.

This route is available to all current Aston students who have the option to choose a language module as part of their degree. All languages modules award 20 credits and are taken for the full academic year (two hours of teaching per week)
