Program overview

Studying a modern language opens up a world of opportunities, and a French degree from the University of Stirling is designed with your future firmly in mind. You’ll be qualified to apply this knowledge in a host of professional arenas – with former French graduates from Stirling having gone on to work in areas as diverse as journalism, teaching, law and translation. There’s no formula or limit to what you can do with a second language, and the opportunity to spend an extended period studying abroad will further broaden your horizons and adaptability. ou can begin your French studies in either the advanced stream (for all students who have a Higher French or equivalent) or in the beginners’ stream. If you’re in the beginners’ stream, the focus is first and foremost on intensive language learning and on building written and spoken language skills across the first semesters of study. Students in the advanced stream study a range of aspects of modern and contemporary French and Francophone history, politics and culture alongside weekly written and spoken language classes. The two teaching streams merge from Semester 4 onwards. In Semesters 5-8, you’ll take core language modules in spoken and written French, and choose specialisms in a range of modules. In most degree combinations including French, Semester 6 is a compulsory study abroad period – which is spent at a partner university in France, Switzerland, Morocco or Quebec. Students who do not undertake Semester 6 Abroad will be required to fulfil the minimum residence requirement (usually 4 weeks spent in a French-speaking country, often at a language school). This minimum residence is undertaken at the student’s own expense and during vacation time.
