King's College London, University of London has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This is a three-year course in which you will take modules totalling 120 credits for each year of study. We offer specialised modules in French translation that will enable you to speak and write the language at a sophisticated level. You will also choose form a range of optional modules in French literature, culture, history and politics, all taught by internationally recognised lecturers. Please note, this course is not designed for native French speakers.
We use small-group classes and seminars to deliver most of the modules on the programme. The French BA modules are demanding, focusing on high-level written and oral French skills. Throughout your study pathway you will be supported by native French speakers.
We will assess your progress and attainment on all the modules you study through a combination of written examinations and coursework. Your final degree classification will be based on the modules you take in each of the three years of study.
French BA is primarily taught at the Strand Campus and the University of London in Paris (ULIP).
