Adding a European language to your Geography degree will open up a much broader range of career opportunities. It also lets you examine Geography in a French context as you will spend a period of time studying at a University in the country. We offer undergraduate language courses at all levels from beginners to final year. One of the strengths of the undergraduate degree programme is its flexibility and the possibility it offers of combining French and Francophone studies with almost any other discipline, so you can tailor your degree to suit your own particular needs and interests.
As an integral part of an honours degree in French, you will spend a half-year or a full year in a French-speaking country, either working as a language assistant, or as a visiting student at one of the institutions with whom we have Erasmus exchange agreements (these include Lyon, Rennes, Grenoble, Réunion, Brussels, Geneva, Lausanne), or possibly on a work placement. Students have undertaken successful placements with the IFP (Institute of French Petroleum) School in Paris and the Club des Langues in Anglet.
