Online Evening Classes


Our online evening course programme in Modern Foreign Languages is designed for anyone interested in learning a new language or improving existing language skills. We also offer online evening English language courses for non-native English.  The courses are open to University of Aberdeen staff, students and the general public.

Courses are for recreational purposes only and do not involve any form of assessment prior to the courses starting, during or after. 

Our courses run for 12 weeks starting in both September and January, and then 6 weeks in April. They occur one evening per week for 1.5 hours. They are taught by native speakers.



Please register for your course as soon as possible to avoid disappointment, especially in the level 1 classes. If your class is full when you go to book it, add your details to the waiting list as we may be able to add another class if staff availability and time permit. 


Please enrol for your course on our online store.  Payment can be made by debit card, credit card or paypal. 

Please note:

  • We do not accept ILA funding.
  • We reserve the right to cancel any evening course which does not attract sufficient numbers. In this case full refunds will be given.
