Course summary

By studying Mathematics with French you will be joining a culturally diverse community of students and one of the largest and most exciting groups of leading French scholars in London. French is an official language in 29 countries and the fourth most widely spoken first language in the EU. One fifth of non-Francophone Europeans also speak it. We are located just 40 minutes outside of central London, which is France’s ‘sixth biggest city’ in terms of its population of French nationals and boasts a wealth of French cultural resources. There has always been a logical connection between the study of mathematics and languages and our three-year Mathematics with French programme allows you to develop your skills in both.Galileo famously described the universe as a book written in a mathematical language, and this concept of mathematics as a universal language has never been more relevant in our technologically advanced and globalised world. As with any language, mathematics can be studied and enjoyed for its own sake, but it is also a powerful vehicle for transmitting ideas. On this programme you will gain a thorough grounding in all the key concepts and methods of mathematics, which comprises 75% of the programme, whilst honing your French language skills and gaining valuable cross-cultural perspectives under the guidance of our young and dynamic team of native-speaking language specialists. We teach modern languages at beginner or advanced levels, depending on your previous experience.All three years of this programme are completed in the UK. Its modular structure allows you to tailor your studies to your own interests. You will not only improve your numerical skills and your proficiency at reading, writing, listening and speaking in French, but you will also gain transferable skills such as critical thinking, analysis, research, data handling and creative problem solving. Our Department of Mathematics is internationally renowned for its work in pure mathematics, information security, statistics and theoretical physics, and our broad curriculum spans pure and applied mathematics, statistics and probability, and the mathematics of information and of financial markets. Both departments offer friendly and motivating learning environments and a strong focus on small group teaching and ongoing academic support, with a personal adviser to guide you through your studies. We also offer a competitive work placement scheme.Specialise in mathematics but hone your language skills by studying French to an advanced level.Work across two friendly departments, where the focus is on small group teaching and you will be known as an individual.Tailor your degree to your own interests, with our wide range of optional modules.
