Trosolwg

Why study French with German at Aberystwyth University?

  • From the off-set, you will receive 4 hours of language work per week. This includes reading/writing, aural, listening and translation. These four areas of linguistic development provides you with the solid foundation to increase your fluency competencies in French and German.
  • This degree is also available to students who wish to study French and German at beginners level (minimum requirement is a GCSE C grade in the two languages). At beginners level and in your first year, you will be taught differently to the students who are entering the course at advanced level (A level or equivalent) will receive intensive language classes bringing you to the same linguistic level as our advanced students. In your second and final year, you will be continuing the course with all advanced students.
  • In addition to linguistic classes, we offer all students core and optional modules that expose you to literature, culture, language, politics and business.
  • All students in our department thrive in our multilingual environment. As a vibrant University, we attract students from all corners of the world. Many of our staff who will teach you are native speakers of the target language that they speak. We also teach most of our modules and classes through the target language, therefore the combination of departmental life and academic development will ensure that you have maximum exposure to the target languages that you're learning.
  • The highlight of this degree for all of our students is the year abroad. As you're studying two languages, you will be required to spend your year abroad (your third year) equally between France and Germany. Some students opt to spend their time equally studying with our partnered Universities in France (or a French speaking country) and Germany or Austria. Others have spend their time equally undertaking a paid or unpaid work experience placement in the two countries. Find out what your options are by visiting our Studying Abroad page.
