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.

They focus on giving you an in-depth knowledge not only of the language, but also the factors that are shaping France and the wider Francophone world today. This contemporary, all-encompassing approach means you’ll graduate with a true grasp of France’s place in the world and a deep understanding of the language’s ongoing evolution and reach.

At the University of Stirling, their innovative Law courses give you an opportunity to study a range of subjects that reflect the importance of law in every area of society. We offer two BA (Hons) courses – in Law and Business Law –which can kick-start a career in the modern legal market, such as legal analyst roles or jobs in a host of business settings.

Throughout your course, you’ll be taught by leading academics who helped write the textbooks you’re studying. At Stirling, their expertise comes to you first-hand, and you’ll be part of a close-knit legal department dedicated to providing a rich, enjoyable student experience. From Contract and Criminal Law to International Human Rights, you’ll gain a firm grounding in essential subjects and enjoy the freedom to specialise in areas that interest you most.

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. Other fields our French graduates currently work in include banking, management, marketing and public relations.

A BA in Law from the University of Stirling paves the way for opportunities in the modern legal market. By focusing on law within a wider social and business context, they’ve helped to prepare recent graduates for jobs with major organisations like Aviva Insurance, Royal Bank of Scotland, FIFA, the NHS and the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. Students who have graduated from this course in the last five years are working in roles such as:

Trainee solicitor
Legal counsel
Business relations manager
Factoring consultant
PR account executive
Sales and marketing executive

The BA Law and BA Business Law provide you with a wide range of analytical and transferable skills, and are suitable for any profession in which a non-specialised degree is required. As a non-qualifying law degree, the BA Law is aimed primarily at those not wishing to become practicing lawyers; however, some students who undertake this degree do choose to go on and train to become lawyers. Others choose to access a wide range of careers in the Public, Private and Third sectors.
