People

Find out more about Language Centre staff.

We all have a people page with information on who we are, what we teach and/or our areas of responsibility. 

All office hours are currently conducted online and 20KSW is only open to our BSc programme students.

Things to note

Teaching staff offices

  • Please book office hours via the Student Hub.
  • Office hours are offered for the duration of the programme only.
  • Many languages offer more than one office hour and some are only for specific courses.
  • Not all teachers have an office hour so you may need to see the Co-ordinator for the course(s) in question.
