Comments about BA English and French - At the institution - Coventry - West Midlands
This joint degree allows the student to explore English literature along with the foreign literature which has been most closely allied to it. The French language component is the same as in the degree in French Studies, ensuring that graduates have exactly the same linguistic qualification as other graduates of French. The aim of the degree is to study some of the ways in which, from Chaucer to the present day, English and French writers have themselves created ‘comparative literature’ by learning from, or reacting against, the literature of the other country.
General university admissions requirements All applicants must possess a minimum level of competence in English Language and in Mathematics or a Science. A pass at Grade C or above in GCSE English Language and in Mathematics or a Science, or an equivalent qualification, fulfils this requirement. For some courses, requirements are above this University minimum, so you should check the relevant course-specific entry requirements in our hard copy prospectus which you can order online or browse on our online directory. We usually ask for candidates to show a broad base of study at GCSE level (or equivalent) with passes in at least five subjects from a range of disciplines.
