For the full-time one-year option in French, you are required to choose from modules which, when combined, result in 60 credits. Most modules at University College Cork have a value of 5 credits and involve one hour of teaching per week for the duration of the academic year.
However, a language module represents 10 credits and involves three classes a week, one of which focuses upon oral skills. This means a full-time student will have a total of 13 hours of classes per week for the duration of the academic year.
Assessment is by a combination of essays and final year examinations in both written and oral French.
The qualification will give you a strong sense of the importance of France and the French language in the world today. You will acquire not only knowledge, but also skills. The global spread of French as a language, the economic strength of France, as well as emerging Francophone cultures, make this a great time to discover more from our Department.
