Course summary

This programme enables you to study two major world languages in the context of the histories, literatures and societies of the many countries, globally, in which they're spoken. Between them, Chinese and French have over two billion native speakers and are your gateway to a vast range of cultures in Europe, Africa, North America and East Asia. Edinburgh is the only university in Scotland to offer undergraduate honours programmes in Chinese, enabling you to learn modern standard Chinese in the context of Chinese history, literature and culture, past and present. Likewise, you'll learn the French language while exploring Francophone literature and cinema, fascinating political history, social movements and philosophical ideas. Both subjects will develop your skills in translation, reading, writing and oral communication, including through a year abroad in either China or Taiwan and a French-speaking country. Employers recognise the importance of both languages and the benefits of a broad intercultural education. Our graduates are prized for their capability to act as bridges of understanding between Chinese, French and British cultures.
