French Studies and International Relations, 2017

I decided to study French Studies and International Relations for a number of reasons. Firstly, foreign languages have always been something that have clicked with me.

Secondly, International Relations ties in well with the global aspect of languages and, coming into university with a decent understanding and interest in politics, it seemed like the natural choice to accompany French.

English Literature and French, 2016

The best thing about the course is the tutors. They have made me even more passionate about learning French because they care about the students. They really want to help us to make the most of our degrees and so they always make time for you. The fact that the tutors are all native French-speakers also inspires me because their incredible level of English makes me want to be that good in French!

French and Drama, 2016

I love learning new things. With languages you never stop learning as there will always be a new word to add to your list of vocabulary. I have always been interested in the French culture and its language as I used to go on family holidays to France every year. My French tutors are fantastic at helping me and directing me in the right way so I can improve my work. In particular, Professor Nathalie Aubert has been an absolutely wonderful tutor. Every class with her is really interactive which helps improve our French oral skills.
