French at Sheffield gives you flexibility and choice. A long list of optional modules means you’re free to follow your own path. Learning the language is compulsory, of course. We want you to develop your written and spoken French to a very high standard. Our School is in the top 10 in the Russell Group for its research impact. We teach in English and French. Our language classes are led by native speakers. We keep the groups small, so everyone gets the level of tutoring they need. You’ll spend roughly thirty per cent of your time in the Department of Germanic Studies, studying the language and culture of the Netherlands. Your year abroad will be split between one Dutch and one French-speaking country. Choosing a degree like this one is often the first step towards a richer intellectual and cultural life. A second language, and experience of living and studying in another culture are big advantages in the jobs market, particularly if you want an international career. Our graduates go into advertising, the media, translating, interpreting, business, law, charity and social work.
