Modern Languages Tailored courses


Would you like to offer your students in your department, faculty or college a language component as part of their Oxford experience? Do your students frequently ask you for priority status to attend one of our language classes?

If so, a tailor-made course is a cost-effective way to offer quality language teaching to your students. Our language tutors will work with you to create a course for you, which can be held on your own premises for maximum convenience. Students will benefit from studying with their peers, and our tutors can provide material directly relevant to their course of study as appropriate.

We can discuss offering courses of any length, both term-time and out of term, intensive or easy-paced, with or without an examined component. Our clients, past and present, include the Faculties of, Art History, History and Classics, the Departments of Chemistry, Education, Engineering, Mathematics and Physics.
