The Foreign Language Centre, founded in 1989, is an independent unit providing all the faculties and institutes of the university with language services. The Centre, employing about 200 full- and part-time staff (programme co-ordinators, language teachers and examiners, translators, interpreters and editors) offers a wide range of services to those interested in language learning, language exams and language mediation. In addition to the traditional language courses beginning in September and February, it organises special courses for those who would like to prepare themselves efficiently for the different levels of the ECL language exam.
