Visiting Students - French

Modern Languages

Courses in French

Beginners' and intermediate courses in the French language cannot be offered in the College. Students interested in these options may be able to join courses in the University's Language Centre, subject to availability.

For students with credits in Advanced French (equivalent to C1 in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages), the following courses are available:

1. Advanced Translation. In all three terms: fortnightly clasess translating from French into English.

2. Philology. Term-long courses of four fortnightly tutorials:

(a) Medieval French Language

(b) Anglo-Normal Language

(c) Medieval French Palaeography

(d) Medieval French Comic Literature

(e) Medieval French Epic and Romance

(f) Anglo-Norman Literature.

All Visiting Students in French take "1. Advanced Translation". Those combining French with another subject choose one course per term from "2. Philology". Those taking French on its own choose two courses per term from this list.

Students also have the option to attend any lectures which interest them. It may be possible to arrange teaching outside the college on literary subjects and periods other than those listed above.
