Placements in France, Belgium, Canada or other parts of the francophone world will normally be undertaken.

If you are taking French as a major or equal subject, you will spend the third year on a placement as a student at one of our partner universities in France or Belgium, or as an English language assistant in a school in France or another French-speaking country.
