Programme structure

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 our 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.

Career opportunities

The French graduates have gone on to a wide variety of careers that span publishing, journalism, television, advertising, translation, law and teaching French or English as a foreign language. Language graduates develop excellent oral and written skills; independence and self-reliance; and confidence in dealing with a variety of people, situations and cultures.
