What degree programmes can I follow?
You can also study French without an A level on our NEW Beginners' Pathway. More details here
Through the Single Honours course you will become a skilled language practitioner while developing expertise in fields such as literature, history, film, sociology and gender studies.
Alternatively, you can study French alongside another subject. This will allow you to learn linguistic skills and cultural competency while developing a broad knowledge base and skill set. You can choose to combine French with other languages offered in the school, with the option of learning a new language - such as Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Polish or Czech - from scratch. You can also combine French with a non-language subject.
You also have the chance of studying French with two other subjects. You can study French alongside two other languages as part of the BA in Modern Languages or you can study French alongside a mixture of non-language and language subjects as part of the Combined Honours - Triple.
For all information about entry requirements, including our typical offer for single and dual honours courses, required subjects and the number of A levels required, please consult our online prospectus.
'And' degrees - for example French and English - usually involve a 50/50 split between the two subjects. However, many of our 'and' degrees can now be studied as a flexible dual, allowing you to study more credits in either one of your subjects, you simply decide when you select your modules.
'With' degrees - for example French with Japanese - let you choose a ‘Major’ and ‘Minor’ focus. The first subject (French) is the major part of your degree and the second subject (Japanese) the minor. Each degree is different, but as a rough guide the major subject forms around 70 per cent of your course and the minor 30 per cent.
