Study two languages and develop the business and language skills needed to take advantage of a growing demand for international business graduates with language expertise. You study French with another foreign language. You can choose your additional language from • Spanish • German • Italian. Italian is offered at beginner level only. Your non-language modules studied abroad cover international business topics, such as management in a global context. You study French to post A/AS level, and your secondary language to either post A/AS level, post GCSE or beginner level, depending upon your competence. Studying French and an additional language with international business provides you with the theoretical knowledge, practical understanding and language expertise required to pursue various careers in business or management, with global, international or UK-based multinational organisations. Facilities Use the latest methods to quickly increase your language fluency in modern facilities designated for language students. These include high-tech multimedia digital language laboratories and computer facilities, as well as social areas for informal learning. Support We encourage a strong student community across our language courses. This includes a peer mentoring programme and tandem language practice with native speaking language assistants, which helps to improve your conversation skills and helps you get to know other students on your course. Overseas placements As part of your course, you spend 12 months on placement in an organisation based in a French-speaking country plus a further six months at one of our partner universities in the country of your additional language. Your placement is a great opportunity to gain valuable international business experience. It helps you develop your skills and language ability, and significantly enhances your employability. You can apply for placements with international companies such as Orange Business Services, France and France Telecom. If you study abroad, or do your work placement, in another European country there may be funding available through the Erasmus programme.
