About the course

French is the official language of many international organisations. Almost half of UK businesses have identified French as a useful language within their organisation, which opens doors to a wide range of careers. French at Hull combines the study of the language and its associated cultures as a gateway into the French-speaking world. You’ll spend your third year abroad, where you can choose to study in a French university or gain experience on a work placement.

Hull offers excellent language learning facilities, with a dedicated space for languages students. Our team of Language Learning Advisors offer extra one-to-one support to help you with your studies, as well as a partnership scheme which allows you to practise French with native speakers. While studying for your degree, you have the opportunity to gain a recognised teaching qualification in Trinity CertTESOL (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). If you don’t have the qualifications to enter the programme directly, we offer a foundation year to prepare you for degree-level study.
