Trosolwg

To enable you to take the combination of subjects that best suits your interests and requirements, the University offers a wide range of Major/Minor combinations as well as Joint Honours degrees. Major/Minor degrees enable you to study two subjects, but devote 2/3 of your time to one of them. Joint Honours degrees enable you to study two subjects equally so that you gain a sound knowledge of both. If a language is studied as a Major or Minor element or as a Joint Honours degree, the degree is a four-year scheme. The University offers both BA French with International Politics as Major Minor scheme (R1L2) as well as French and International Politics (LRF1) as a Joint Honours scheme.

France is one of Britain’s main economic partners and is Europe’s foremost investor abroad. Language skills are vital to the UK’s economic, political and strategic interests and languages graduates are in demand by employers. Whilst you will acquire the same skills as other Arts graduates, you will have one major advantage compared to other students: you will have lived independently in at least one foreign country, and have learnt the important social skill of intercultural communication. Employers value the independence, the social confidence and the high level of linguistic skill acquired during this time.

The Department of European Languages offers a range of attractive degree schemes which will equip you not only with a high level of linguistic competence but also provide you with a sound knowledge of the culture within which the language or languages you are studying is/are used. During your time as a student you will be able to choose from a range of modules which appeal to a variety of interests. The Department is relatively small and this means that staff and students form a close-knit and friendly community. Many of the modules relate to staff research interests and you will benefit from being taught by staff who are experts in their fields and who are active members of national and international research communities.

Founded in 1919 after the end of World War I, the Department of International Politics at Aberystwyth is the world’s first university department of International Politics. It has around 30 academic and research staff, all of whom are research active and contribution to the undergraduate teaching programme. The Department's vibrant and cosmopolitan learning environment welcomes students from all over the world, and provides a lively venue for contemporary and international political debate.

The Department of International Politics is committed to excellence in both teaching and research, providing you with an outstanding and dynamic learning environment. Research excellence feeds directly into undergraduate teaching, so that you are exposed to the very latest and most innovative ideas in the field even before they have become generally available through publication. We firmly believe that the synergy between research and teaching makes for a thought-provoking education.

The Department is renowned for its pioneering research and is recognised as number one in the UK for the study of international politics. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (2014), the Department of International Politics was placed best in Wales with 69% of publications submitted rated as world leading.

The Department operates a prestigious Parliamentary Placement scheme, enabling you to gain valuable experience working alongside an MP (House of Commons, Westminster) or an AM (Welsh Assembly, Cardiff) for a period of 4-6 weeks during the summer. During this time you will write reports and speeches, undertake research projects, and respond to constituency issues. There may be further opportunities for you to get involved in elections and various international issues.

Cyflogadwyedd

Your BA in French with International Politics opens up a range of exciting opportunities for employment and further training. Modern linguists are statistically amongst the most employable graduates. Many of our students go on to teach the languages they themselves have learned and a high proportion of our graduates go into administrative and managerial posts. A degree from the European Languages Department is a qualification which opens the door to many professions in Britain, such as the civil service, tourism, social work, librarianship, publishing and broadcasting, and our degrees also take our students across the world.

Your year abroad will set you apart from the majority of graduates, demonstrating your ability to live in a foreign environment, and immerse yourself in a different culture. Alongside this, the university will offer you a range of initiatives to help improve your employability skills. Paid work and work experience opportunities are available in the University and the town, and the Careers Advisory Service are able to assist you in planning your future, putting together a CV, and looking for work during and after your studies. Furthermore, the University’s Personal Development Portfolio, in which you record and reflect on your academic studies, the development of your skills and your plans for the future is a useful way of tracking your progress through your studies, and can help you to decide what career might be suitable for you.

Transferable Skills

Studying for a degree in French with International Politics will equip you with a range of transferable skills which are highly valued by employers. These include:

• the ability to express ideas and communicate information in a clear and structured manner, in both written and oral form

• effective problem-solving and creative thinking skills

• the ability to work independently

• time-management and organisational skills, including the ability to meet deadlines

• self-motivation and self-reliance

• team-working, with the ability to discuss concepts in groups, accommodating different ideas and reaching agreement

• research skills

Addysg a Dysgu

French is available both for beginners and advanced students. Beginners follow an intensive course in the first year including guided and independent work in the Language Resource Centre. In the second year beginners and advanced students are taught together.

In French language classes you will consolidate your knowledge of French grammar and will also practise putting that grammar to use in a range of oral and written styles. Our excellent laboratory facilities offer access to live French television programmes as well as a wealth of computer-assisted language-learning exercises, most of which you can access at any time of day for self-study to support your classroom–based learning. Translation is another important skill you will practise regularly, as well as essay- and report-writing.

As a student of French at Aberystwyth you have a wide range of modules from which to choose. All of them have been designed to consolidate your knowledge of the culture, language and society of France and the French-speaking world. Modules in French linguistics, contemporary French politics and Business French are available as well as French literature. Currently we offer courses on, for example, Images of France through Childhood Memory, The Myth of Paris, Écritures de soi, and Regional Languages and Dialects of France. Staff have published widely on all of these topics.

Within the Erasmus framework we currently enjoy special links with the universities of Rennes, Paris-Sorbonne, Toulouse, Besançon, Nantes, Perpignan and La Rochelle. Your year abroad, which forms your third year of study, may well be the most exciting, enjoyable and rewarding feature of a degree in European Languages. Having to spend a year living independently in a foreign country gives you an edge when it comes to impressing employers, as well as providing you with a memorable experience. 

The Department believes in giving students a relatively free choice about the year abroad, although we do of course give you plenty of advice. Many students study at one or more universities. You can study at one university in the winter semester and spend the next semester in a country where your second language is spoken.  Or, if you prefer, you can work as an English assistant in a school. Being an assistant has the important benefits of a regular salary every month and daily contact with a large number of people, which means many opportunities for communicating in the foreign language.

You could also choose to be in other employment, and a good proportion of our students use their own initiative to find themselves employment for a year. There are also various EU-funded schemes which offer work placements abroad, e.g. Comenius or Leonardo. Full details will be made available to you in your second year. You can also choose a combination of these possibilities, for example studying for one semester and working for one; assistantships are also available for some countries for half-years.
