About European Studies (French) at University of Kent

Europe is geographically, linguistically and culturally diverse. It is also at the centre of many contemporary political debates. European Studies at Kent is based in the School of European Culture and Languages (SECL) and benefits from the interdisciplinary culture within the School. The programme gives you the opportunity to study French to an advanced level. In addition to your language modules, there is a wide range of options available to you covering the history, culture and politics of Europe and European nations.

French is widely spoken. Not only is it the official language of France, it is also spoken in Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Andorra, as well as being widely spoken outside Europe in countries such as Canada, Lebanon, and many African countries. 

The University of Kent is an ideal location to study French. Canterbury is the closest British university city to mainland Europe, and our proximity to the Channel ports and Ashford International station means you can be in France in just a couple of hours. There are also many French-speaking students on campus, so you have a better chance to immerse yourself in the language than at any other university in the country.

You can also take our European Studies programme with a focus on German, Italian or Spanish, or choose to study two languages in our combined languages programme. For details, see: 

  • European Studies (Combined Languages)
  • European Studies (German)
  • European Studies (Italian)
  • European Studies (Spanish).
