Do you need another language for your career? Would you like to improve your speaking skills and or perhaps make yourself feel more confident and at ease when giving presentations in another language? The UM Language Centre offers alumni a discount when attending language courses. As a graduate, you pay the same price as the employees of the university.

The UM Language Centre provides language courses for you as alumni weather you are an individual or in-company with a group. We offer courses in English, Dutch, French, Spanish, German and Italian, from beginner to advanced level. Courses are taught by experienced professional teachers, many of whom have work experience in the business world. So would you like to brush up your English or learn Italian, Russian or another new modern foreign language. Are you looking for a language course in German, Spanish, Chinese or Portuguese? This is the right place for you.

Maybe a lack of confidence is holding you back from speaking Dutch? Learning Dutch will make your life in the Netherlands a lot easier.
