Overview

The UK loses £48 billion per year due to a lack of languages skills*. Employers need multilingual communicators who can speak with people on the same cultural wavelength. Becoming a Birmingham languages graduate takes you there.

Mathematics is the language of science and engineering, and an intellectual field in its own right. It is a discipline that is forever opening up to us, revealing new and fascinating truths and ideas, and helping to expand upon our knowledge in all directions.

Modern Languages at Birmingham ranks in the Top 100 in the QS World University Rankings 2018. The study of French and Mathematics is an exciting chance to develop a wide range of skills that will equip you for a huge range of careers, both in this country and abroad. You’ll develop advanced language and mathematical skills, as well as a deep cultural understanding of French culture through true immersion on your Year Abroad.

Programme structure

French:
During your years of study you will take compulsory language modules depending on your language proficiency (Beginner or post A-Level). You will then choose amongst a wide range of optional modules depending on the number of credits you are taking in the language.

You can find out more about the available modules dependent on your credit weighting for your chosen language via the My Choices website. The modules listed may occasionally be subject to change.
