English (Alta) - one year programme

Use your English: explore the culture of English-speaking countries, sharpen your analytical language skills, improve your oral performance and intercultural competence, and learn how to teach English. The course is suitable for students with various backgrounds such as teaching, administration, health, tourism, and business.


Our English program is open for students from all faculties. It is possible to start in the fall or in the spring and to take any number and combination of modules or the entire year course. Several of the modules improve your practical skills, some widen your intercultural horizon, and in others you gain a deeper understanding of literature and culture. Most modules are taught in Alta, some abroad. There will be a mix of classroom teaching in four blocks of one week duration per semester and additional online instruction. Our students come from different countries and different walks of life. Welcome to experience a world language that binds people together!
