Expand your horizons and achieve fluency in French by immersing yourself in the history and cultures of the French-speaking world. You can expect to become confident and highly skilled in written and spoken French and master the fundamental elements of the language. You will also have the opportunity to study with staff who are internationally recognised experts in French-speaking literature, history and culture, as well as translation and adaptation studies. You will spend up to a year in a French-speaking country, studying at a university, working on a placement, or as a British Council language assistant in a school. This enables you to immerse yourself in the culture and develop your language to a high level. The core language module in the second year will prepare you for your time abroad, equipping you with the skills and knowledge required to work and live in a different culture.
