The French language element of the course can be taken at beginners’ level or is suitable for those with an A level or equivalent qualification. Beginners take an intensive programme of language instruction, and post-A level students take a language course designed with their prior experience in mind. The two strands merge in the final year and our students achieve degree-level competence in French regardless of their starting point. Your language studies will be enhanced by access to our outstanding range of facilities, such as our self-access Language Learning Centre which houses extensive resources for independent language study.
