General information

Lessons will be delivered either in person (In-person learning, IPL) or remotely (live online interactive learning, LOIL). How your course will be delivered is indicated on the timetable.

If you are taking a course that is online, before enrolling, please make sure you are able to find a suitable quiet space to take part fully in the interactive class and that you have enough time to reach that destination before the lesson starts.

Please use the enrolment links and the teacher will contact you about the class.

We are using MySkills instead of SAMIS this semester so your language course will not show in MyTimetable or in SAMIS.

You should only take one course per semester due to the time and commitment required. If you would like to join more than one, please contact fl-enquiries@bath.ac.uk as you will need approval from one of the course leaders.

Courses will be 10 weeks with a 2-week Easter break in between (weeks commencing 3 and 10 April 2023).
