Description of centre

The University Language Centre (ULC) has over 30 years experience of delivering English language teaching. We welcome a diverse international student body to all of our courses. We have around 2000 students studying on our full-time English language courses each year from all over the world. Our English Language courses are accredited by the British Council and following our most recent inspection, we became the highest ranking language centre in the UK, according to the el.gazette Centres of Excellence rankings.

Besides English, we teach 17 other languages including British Sign Language for personal, professional and academic purposes. Our language courses are open to students and staff at the University of Manchester along with members of the public. The ULC is a centre for internationally recognised examinations including IELTS (non UKVI), Goethe-Institut, Paris Chamber of Commerce and Madrid Chamber of Commerce.

By choosing to study at the University Language Centre, your experience will be enriched by our passionate staff and students and diverse campus.


Students are accommodated in homestay accommodation between September and June, whilst students in the summer will have the choice of en-suite or standard self-catered university residential accommodation between July and September.
