    I don't know about other unis but at UEA, they have evening lessons or something where you can learn other languages, and this is completely in your free time Someone may need to back me up though but I think that's what they said on the open day

    They have this at most unis. Also at Edinburgh you can take modules in other fields similar to yours where you can take up a new language from scratch/continue at level from school (at least for first year or two).

    Check with your uni.

    At mine for example, you can for free and there are beginner stages, gcse-level, A-level, etc. If your course permits it you can study it as part of your degree.

    At Warwick as another example, it seems you have to pay to study unless it's part of your degree.

    It depends on each university.

    Here at Queen Mary University of London, we have to pay to learn a language alongside your own degree. Also, the timings might be inconvenient if you are not staying at university... I know here that some classes are in the evening... :/

    My current uni has subscriptions to DVD and online language courses which you can learn from scratch, at your own pace and in your own time.
