University of Kent has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
French is one of the most beautiful and widely-spoken Romance languages. Outside of France, it is spoken as far afield as Canada, the Seychelles, Madagascar and Mali. It is one of the official languages of the United Nations, and an important language within the institutions of the EU. The University of Kent is an ideal location to study French. Canterbury is the closest British university city to mainland Europe, and our proximity to the Channel ports and Ashford International station means you can be in Paris in just a couple of hours. There are also many French-speaking students on campus, so you have a better chance to immerse yourself in the language than at any other university in the country. At Kent, we have a wide range of links with French, Canadian, Belgian and Swiss universities. During your year abroad, as part of an Erasmus exchange programme, you could begin to study for a French qualification (Licence), or you can gain work experience as a language assistant.
