French can be studied at university on its own, or as part of a combined degree with almost any other subject.
It works particularly well with areas such as Business, Finance, Media, Tourism, Design and Fashion, Engineering and Law. French is a valuable asset for many different careers. On their own, languages can be used to pursue careers in Interpreting, translating and teaching.
