Programme Structure

Year 1

  • The course you study in year 1 depends on how much French you have studied before. If you have an SQA Higher or A-level in French (grade A or B), you will take the non-beginners’ language course alongside our French culture course.

Year 2

  • In your second year, you will extend your linguistic skills in our language and culture courses using authentic French texts and media sources. 

Year 3 (study abroad)

  • If you progress to Honours you will spend your third year abroad, normally either working as a language assistant in a school or studying at a university. The University has a number of exchange programmes and will provide support and advice.

Years 4 and 5

  • Along with core language study, you will be able to choose from a wide range of options including literature, cinema, history and other aspects of the language and cultures of the French-speaking world.
