Teaching and assessment

Date of entry

September 2020

Teaching

Throughout Levels 1-4 you will engage in research, moving from assigned and specified activities or studies to more independent practical work.

Most modules at Levels 1 and 2 have two lectures and one tutorial or workshop each week, including online workshops.

At Level 3 you will have lectures each week and tutorials centring around coursework. At Level 4, teaching is in much smaller groups and our module options are informed by the research expertise of our staff, and vary slightly from year to year.

In your final year a supervisor will oversee a dissertation project where you will apply your research skills.

The French modules in Levels 1 and 2 have four hours of tutorials each week. In Levels 3 and 4 this changes to two hours of language tutorial each week, plus 10 hours of lectures/seminars on French film, culture and society across the year.

In addition to language classes, you must attend regular film screenings or make appropriate alternative arrangements for viewing the films studied on the course.
