About

Gain advanced linguistic skills in French and German and discover the culture and history of two major European languages and their influence on the world. The French and German (Hons) program is offered at University of Kent.

Overview

French is native to France, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada and the French Caribbean, and is an official language in much of Africa and Asia. German is the most widely spoken language in Western Europe, and German history, science and culture have had a huge impact across the world.

Studying French and German (Hons) program at University of Kent gives you the opportunity to become proficient in two major international languages, and complement your language learning with a broad understanding of history, literature and culture. Fluency in the these two languages, combined with knowledge of political and cultural developments in German- and French-speaking countries, opens up international career opportunities.

Key facts:

Studying at our Canterbury campus gives you a fantastic opportunity to immerse yourself in both languages. There is a large community of French and German-speaking students on campus, and our proximity to airports, the Channel ports and the Eurostar terminals at Ashford and Ebbsfleet make it quick and easy to get to Paris, Brussels and Lille, and from there to the rest of mainland Europe.

A number of our staff are native speakers and our facilities include multimedia laboratories, which offer a variety of interactive language learning programmes and dictionaries, and access to audio, video and computer-assisted language learning.
