Improving English Skills

For international students and partners whose first language is not English, there are opportunities on the University of Leeds campus and in the community to improve their skills.

The University’s International Students’ Club offers free English classes in the Emmanuel Centre on campus. Students and partners are welcome to come along every Wednesday at 4pm.

There are several free English classes and ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) in Leeds. For more information visit the relevant Leeds City Council webpages.

Local colleges such as the Leeds English Language School and Leeds Language College offer English classes. These usually have a charge, but can provide more structured lessons offering qualifications.
