10/11/2017 - Future
Students have submitted some great ideas, but unfortunately the Students' Union is not currently in a position to implement these. These will be something we can look at in the future.
Have (at least) 1 free language course per year for students
I suggest allowing students to have at least one language short course per year free as they currently cost £203 per course for any participant. Most other unis you can do a language as part of your degree, or they allow you to do free language courses every year outside of university hours. For me personally, I like to learn languages and feel that being formally taught will be more beneficial, but the price is putting me off. Learning a language looks good to employers and can also help you if you choose to study abroad, which also looks good to employers. Being a university with many international students, we should be encouraging more students to have an international outlook.
Student Leader Feedback
Jiachen LiuVice President International,
The University already provides similar sessions through the Culture Exchange Sessions: The Cultural Exchange Sessions project was created by students, for students. The sessions are free and informal, where all students/staff have the opportunity to experience a new culture and learn a language. It is also a great chance to meet new people and make great friends. No assessment or exams are required. You're welcome whether you already have some experience in the language, or are a beginner - the sessions are for everybody! On offer this year: French Spanish German Italian Chinese (Mandarin) Japanese Romanian (NEW) Polish (NEW) Dutch (NEW) Portuguese (NEW) If you have any questions?
