Program overview

You can study French at either Beginner- or Advanced-level. If you have already taken an A-level in French you would start at Advanced level. If you have an A-level in another foreign language then you can begin studying French at Beginner level. Throughout the course you will develop your writing skills in French through the production of short pieces of creative writing and other activities such as online language learning and the use of materials taken from French television and radio, with oral teaching conducted in small groups, mostly by native speakers. Developing your foreign language skills gives you a powerful advantage in business and opens up a wide and exciting range of careers. You will be able to immerse yourself in a rich culture of learning-led experience in a supportive and tailored learning environment, and you will be supported by our team of personal tutors to help you make the best of your time here. As part of the degree you will study abroad for a year, where you can live as a student or work as a teaching assistant, with tutors on hand to help throughout the year. We have links with several universities in Belgium, France, Switzerland, and Canada. Alternatively, you can take up an approved work placement in a French-speaking country. In addition, at the end of your first year, you will be able to spend three weeks in one of our fully-funded summer schools so that you can immerse yourself in the language and culture that you are studying. The Year Abroad is a fundamental element of our joint degrees, giving you the chance to study or work in one or two countries related to your course. Alternatively, you can apply to spend a year working as a British Council language-teaching assistant or on some other work placement of your choice, subject to approval. It is even possible to split the year between study abroad and work placement, giving you the best of both worlds. However, it is possible, in exceptional cases, to complete this degree in three years, without a year abroad.
