French Studies

Both the university and the French department were highly recommended to me by others

I initially wanted to study in Oxford because I fell in love with the city. Also, both the university and the French department were highly recommended to me by others.

I have a natural love for learning languages and the French course served only to deepen this. Here at Brookes I feel that I have been sufficiently challenged to achieve my best by my extremely helpful and supportive lecturers. Taking advantage of the many opportunities I had to visit France certainly helped me improve my fluency as well.

French is a beautiful language and it will hopefully form a very big part of my future. I am planning on moving to France to study the language further and then get a job in an international company.

If I had one piece of advice for French students it would be to take full advantage of the resources in the library. I was amazed at the amount of books there were that are related to French studies. I think they really helped me to progress with the language.
