We offer a flexible and supportive approach to learning which allows you to tailor your degree to your interests, including the opportunity to learn other languages.
This course will see you become confident and highly skilled in written and spoken French. You will master the fundamental elements of the language, to the point where you will graduate with a near-native command of it. We provide accelerated learning in French, meaning that you can start from beginner’s level if you have not done the A-level. Regardless of which level you join the course at, you can expect to become confident and highly skilled in written and spoken French by the final year.
A wide range of optional modules in French and francophone culture, history, literature, chanson, politics, and film enhance your learning, and provide you with an in-depth knowledge of these cultures. You will have the opportunity to study with staff who are internationally recognised experts in French studies. This includes modern French history; French philosophy; the literature of the French Caribbean; French children’s books and publishing; Medieval literature, history and art; and translation studies.
