Management studies

French studies

On our French with Management BA course, you will take a series of required language and management modules throughout the programme, and choose from a wide range of optional modules to suit your interests. Your French modules cover French and Francophone language and literature from the Middle Ages to the present day, while your management modules include organisational studies, accounting, marketing, and international business. We also offer a wide range of optional management modules covering areas such as Corporate Finance and Industrial Organisation.

Teaching style
We use lectures, seminars and small group tutorials to deliver most of the modules on the programme. French language modules concentrate on high standards in written, oral and translation skills, and will involve demanding tutorials with experienced native French lecturers

Assessment
We will assess your progress and attainment on all modules you take on both the French and management areas of the programme through a range of techniques including written exams and coursework. The final degree classification you will receive is dependent on which modules you choose to study in the last two years of the programme.

Location
Located in the heart of London at the Strand Campus, the modern languages centre is close to excellent resources for students, with specialist libraries including the Institut Français, as well as exceptional galleries, theatres and cinemas.

Special notes
The single honours four-year French degree, like all other joint and major/minor honours programmes, includes a third year spent studying abroad. If you take joint honours in French and another language your year abroad will usually be split between a French-speaking country and a country speaking your other language. If you combine French with a subject that is not another language your whole year abroad will be spent in a French-speaking country. We have exchanges with many different universities in places as diverse as Paris, Montreal, Geneva and Martinique among others.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

It's often said the UK doesn't produce enough modern language graduates, and graduates from French courses have a lot of options available to them when they complete their courses. About one in five working graduates from 2015 got jobs overseas — often as English teachers — which is much higher than for most subjects. Those who want to stay at home to work find jobs in education, and anywhere where good communication skills are a must. That means you can find French graduates in education, in marketing, in the arts and in business and finance as teachers, writers, personnel officers, financial advisors, analysts, sales people and marketers. But remember — whilst employers say they rate graduates who have more than one language, you need to have them as part of a whole package of good skills.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
