By the end of this course, you will have had the opportunity to develop your language and communication skills to a very high level through the study of the history and culture of France and other French-speaking countries. Placements in France, Belgium, Canada or other parts of the francophone world will be normally undertaken.
If you are a Single Honours student or are taking French as a major or equal subject, you will spend the third year on a placement as a student at one of our partner universities in France or Belgium, or as an English language assistant in a school in France or another French-speaking country. Alternatively, you may look for a work placement.
Why Study French with us?
At Chester, you will have the opportunity to undertake a short placement at the end of Year 2 (Level 5). Depending on factors within your mode of study, you may also have the opportunity to spend an academic year in a French-speaking country. If this is an option for you, it allows you to split your experience of residence abroad, offering you the chance to spend time on different types of placement and, indeed, in different countries.
In your first year you will have the opportunity to study a further language from scratch.
