Rachel Flannery, BA French and Italian
I love learning new languages and experiencing different cultures and studying at the University of Leeds allowed me to spend a term in France and a year in Italy.
I would recommend a year abroad to anyone who wants to expand their horizons. As a language student, it was a fantastic opportunity to improve my language skills but I also think it helped me mature.
The School of Languages, Cultures and Socities has a fantastic support network available and provide a great atmosphere that motivates us to succeed.
I love the wide variety of modules, from Interpreting to Medieval French Literature, and from Cinema to History and the Visual Arts, the French department caters to all tastes among Francophiles!
Speaking a foreign language is really valued by employers, making languages graduates very desirable and therefore employable!
