About the Language Centre
The Language Centre is a constituent unit of Information Services and as such provides language learning opportunities, facilities and resources for all students of the university as well as providing a valuable service to the Northern Ireland business community.
It is University policy that all Queen's students, whatever their subject, should have the opportunity to acquire foreign language skills while studying for their degree or undertaking research. Increasingly, knowledge of foreign languages is recognised as a key to success in the modern world - in commerce and industry, science and technology, and in all the professions. Linguistically competent university students are able to gain broader access to work done in other languages in their discipline and to improve their international prospects, as well as enhancing their general level of education.
The Language Centre at Queen's offers all students and staff the opportunity to improve their language skills or to study a new language. It also supports and enhances the language learning of students from the School of Languages, Literatures and Performing Arts, the School of Education and the English Language Support Unit.
