English is the most widely spread language in the world. It is the official language in countries on all five continents. In certain fields, e.g. computer technology and international aviation, English is the predominant language. It is also the most commonly used lingua franca.

The goal of our first-cycle courses in English is for the students to develop their language comprehension and communicative skills, and to acquire knowledge of culture, society and literature primarily in the UK and the USA. On the C-level students have the opportunity to specialise in linguistics, English or American literature.

Alongside the regular A-C course track, we offer courses for specific purposes, e.g. legal and business English.
