- French courses at Manchester give students a firm grounding in French language and the chance to explore in depth French culture, linguistics, film, art, history and literature. They equip students with the skills needed to thrive in French-speaking environments.
- Throughout the course students are trained in modern spoken and written French by following a high-level core language course. From Year One, students discover how the language really works by learning about its morphology, syntax, phonology and phonetics.
- Students thoroughly develop their French language skills by working with a variety of oral and written French texts and engaging in discussions in French (most of this language instruction takes place in French and is predominantly taught by native speakers).
- Core language courses at all levels of study are complemented by a variety of other Francophone-related topic areas and by a period spent in a French-speaking country, such as at our popular university exchange partners in Brussels, Geneva, Martinique, La Réunion and Quebec. Our students also teach English in schools across the world as part of the British Council's assistantship scheme, and many complete work placements across Europe, Africa and North America.
- Students may also take a set of broad-based content courses that provide essential grounding in key areas of French and Francophone culture (especially visual studies), society, linguistics, history and literature. Some of the content teaching on these courses is in English, so that students can focus fully on the new concepts introduced to them and can hone not only their French language skills, but also their expression and accuracy in English: key transferable skills for the workplace following graduation.
- The course gives students a thorough grounding in the language and culture of the Spanish-speaking world.
- The course immerses students in Spanish language and Hispanic culture. It also provides in-depth knowledge on Latin America and the opportunity to learn Catalan.
The University holds Open Days regularly (usually June, September and October) where you have the opportunity to tour the campus and find out more about the facilities and courses we offer.
If your application meets our criteria, you will be invited to an interview, as part of a Visit Day designed specifically for your area of study. On this day you will find out more about the School and its resources, and meet members of academic and admissions staff who will be able to answer any questions you have. Any offer of a place will be made shortly after this event.
Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2015 will be approximately £9,000 per annum. Tuition fees for international students will be £14,500 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate fees pages.
