French A-Level at The Ridgeway School and Sixth Form College

Course description

What will I be studying?

Studying a language at A Level can be very rewarding. It will challenge your thinking and your views on the world as well as encouraging you to develop opinions about contentious issues such as euthanasia, the death penalty and abortion. A Level French is ideal for those who like debating, presenting and researching or for those who would simply like to learn more about how another country functions. The minimum entry requirement is a grade B at GCSE.

Where can it take me?

Employers value linguists, and not just because they can speak more than one language. They tend to be articulate, quick thinking and adaptable people. A Level French is accepted for all courses at university. All occupations benefit from a language, but in particular: accountants, business managers, any career in business, teachers, bi-lingual secretaries, travel agents, international lawyers and all careers in industry, including engineering. Language graduates in the UK have the highest employment rate of any discipline (other than medicine and law).

Entry requirements

At least 4 C grades at GCSE (or equivalent) in at least 3 different subjects.
