If you’re keen to further your study of the French language, while also qualifying as a teacher, this the perfect course for your aspirations. You’ll increase your general employability in both France and the UK, while also making yourself an ideal candidate for any French language teaching positions.

On this course you’ll have the option to study at the Université Lille 3, honing your French language knowledge and skill amongst French speakers, immersed in French culture. You’ll learn about other modern foreign languages, as well as issues around teaching and learning, classroom interaction, the school curriculum and how school relates to society.

When you complete the course, you’ll be issued with two separate qualifications, one conferred by each of the participating universities. The Master (DDL:FRU) is issued by the Université Lille 3, and the PGCE Modern Foreign Languages will be issued by us.

You’ll be eligible for a significant bursary for training to become a teacher, of either £25,000 or £20,000, depending on degree classification.
