Finnish, Polish or English - EUNICE offers a variety of language courses

EUNICE, the European University for Customised Education, has for the first time set up a wide range of language courses open to all students, lecturers and staff of the alliance.

If you have always wanted to try out a foreign language, the 12 free of charge EUNICE language courses give you the opportunity to do so. Teachers from the different universities have collaborated on the development of these courses. The programme runs between September 2022 and March 2023 and comprises two categories:

  • Seven beginner-level courses introducing the Alliance's national languages: German, Polish, Spanish, French, Italian, Swedish and Finnish.
  • Five English courses that focus on specific topics and offer participants: English for Special Purposes (Engineering), English for Academics, English for General Communication, English Tandem Course, English as a Medium of Instruction.

All language courses take place online and are taught in English. While some courses are open to everyone, others are designed for specific profiles, such as undergraduates, postgraduates, academics or for a limited number of participants. Application deadlines vary, for example, applications for the Italian course must be submitted by the 1st of September 2022, whereas other deadlines run until the end of September or even the beginning of October.

By fostering multilingualism, the Alliance aims to promote the European values of multiculturalism and openness. For those who would be interested in having an experience abroad like the Erasmus programme this is a good opportunity for a first contact with European students.

Detailed information about the language courses catalogue, including study guides and online application forms, is available on the EUNICE website (
