Student’s (and parent’s) most Frequently Asked Questions

Why study French?

French is an official language in 29 countries on five continents. With over 250 million native speakers worldwide. French is one of the official languages (alongside English) of many international organisations, including NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization), the International Olympic Committee, the European Union, and UNESCO (United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization).

In addition, French is the world's 5th most used language, and it is a key player in anything related to art, fashion, cinema, theatre, and literature. Learning a second or third language can open up your employment opportunities as well as your cultural horizons.

For most students who commit to the challenge of studying French, there will be an eventual dawning of light at the end of a long tunnel.

What university degrees is French useful for?

If you have studied the French language and you wish to continue your studies in French literature, then Bachelor's in French studies is your best option. A French-language degree like this is so much more than a way to learn grammar and vocabulary.

Through the course, you will get an opportunity to learn French history, politics, literature, films, and many other things about France. What you come out with isn't just knowledge of how words are pronounced but also information that will help you better understand life in France.

Even if you do not wish to pursue French studies in the future, you can use your knowledge and understanding of the French language to get admission to top French schools and universities in any discipline of your choice. Since the primary mode of communication in French schools and French universities is French, you will have an advantage over those who are not fluent in French.


What careers does studying French lead to?

Studying French can lead to a number of careers, including being an editor or proofreader, a French instructor for people in England, or an English instructor in France, Foreign Exchange Trader, translator, journalist, art & fashion, hospitality, sales and marketing executive in a multinational firm, and much more.

In addition, French is generally the foreign language of choice for International Relations students in North America. This means that taking up a French degree can boost your chances during employment with government agencies or international organisations such as the United Nations, NATO, or the European Union.


How does French help with getting a job?

While employers might not take admit it on their job postings, the truth is that if you speak more than one language, they will be impressed and open to hiring you. They might not ask for your resume at the interview, but they would want you to prove your ability by writing a short sentence and reading it out loud.

If applied properly, there's no reason why learning multiple languages couldn't bring many benefits, such as more opportunities and better employment prospects.
