Which levels do we offer?

We offer French modules from Beginner to Further Advanced level to undergraduate students at the University of Leeds. These modules are offered as 10 or 20 credit discovery modules and are taught across both semesters or in one semester only. 

Please note that due to our 10 credit modules being half the content than our 20 credit modules, it is difficult to progress to the next level.  If you would like the option of progressing to higher levels over your time at the University, please consider the relevant 20 credit module or consult the module tutor regarding further options.
