Course summary

With a strong heritage dating back to 1896, French Studies at Manchester is the oldest in the UK. It's also one of the largest, with over 120 students registering on its various programmes each year. You will be taught by experienced academic staff of international distinction, including two winners of Manchester's Teacher of the Year award, and a dedicated team of specialist language tutors. Among our staff, more than two-thirds are native speakers of French and we teach you in that language from Year 1. Our innovative language-teaching programme, which follows an enquiry-based learning approach, is central to a curriculum that offers an extremely wide choice of course units. These cover the Early Modern period to the present, and fall into the four broad categories of history and politics, literature, popular and visual culture, and linguistics and translation. You will benefit from our rich Library resources - including precious manuscripts, a vast French literature collection, and contemporary digital media - and from our long-established partnership with the Alliance Francaise de Manchester, which hosts cultural events throughout the year, such as film screenings, talks, plays, concerts, exhibitions and intensive language classes.You will also benefit from our collaboration with the Institut de Touraine in the Loire Valley, which hosts Easter and Summer French language classes that are appropriate for ab initio students and finalists.
