France is one of the leading economic and political powers internationally and within the EU (where it represents one of the UK's main business partners). It is distinctive for its exceptional cultural and historical achievements.
A degree in French will lead to an in-depth knowledge of the language, the wider culture of Francophonie in the many countries across the globe where it is spoken, and the varied history, literature and cinema in which the language is embedded.
You can also study French in combination with another language, including German, Italian or Spanish. These languages can be studied from beginner's level (see specific course entry requirements for more details). Learning two languages at university is a great way to further enhance your career prospects.
