Once a CULP class has met for the first time it is not too late to join an Intermediate or Advanced class but you can no longer enrol via the UTBS online system. If you wish to join a class please check the timetable and send an email to culp@langcen.cam.ac.uk, stating the class you wish to join - Language, Level and Time.
NB: Except for Persian, it is no longer possible to join a Basic level class. The next intake for absolute beginners will be in the Easter term.

Follow the side links for information about the languages and levels we offer and the current timetables.

  • CULP courses incorporate taught classes with on-line support. Access to a multi-media capable computer is therefore a necessary condition for completing the course. You can use computers in the Language Centre to access these resources.
  • Please note that the Language Centre reserves the right to cancel groups that fail to enrol at least 12 students. Anyone in a group that is cancelled will be offered the option of either enrolling in an alternative group or being fully refunded.

      It is the student's duty to plan ahead and make sure they can cope with their study workload.
    - Once enrolled you can still change levels provided there are available places in the group you want to move to.

Please make sure you are aware of the dates for the assessment tests which are mandatory. It is your responsibility to ensure you are available on the days your tests are being held. See the dates page for details.

Undergraduate students only: please ask your Tutor or DOS to sign the consent letter and either send it to the Administrator or bring it in to the first lesson.

You can give the signed letter to your teacher at your first lesson, send it via UMS, or leave it at Language Centre reception.
