What will I study?

This motivating course enables you to develop your knowledge and understanding of the French language and culture. You will acquire transferable language and study skills. The course covers political and social issues such as homelessness, and the artistic culture of France and French-speaking countries. You will write essays on one literary text and one film and have conversation lessons with a native speaker. We also offer a work experience programme, which combines a stay in a host family with a work placement in France.

What next?

At university, French can be combined with another language or with many other subjects such as law, history, and even physics. Many university courses feature a year working or studying in a French speaking country. French is essential in the world of business and is good proof of the “breadth” required by universities seeking to recruit, for example, medical students. French gives you the edge you need to get into careers like marketing or journalism, and language graduates are highly employable.
