Comments about BA French and English Literature - At the institution - Reading - Berkshire

  • Objectives
    The French and English course caters for those who prefer to learn more on the French than on the English side and who want, in particular, to benefit from a year spent studying or working in France.
  • Entry requirements
    There are different entry qualifications for each programme. Some programmes require you to have a certain amount of knowledge in a subject before you begin the degree programme – this is called a ‘subject requirement’. Other programmes do not have any specific subject requirements. All programmes will, however, expect you to have reached a certain standard in your education and will ask you to achieve certain grades in your examinations. Most programmes have a standard offer so that you know in advance what you are likely to need. Please note that even if you have the minimum entry qualifications, you are not necessarily guaranteed a place on the degree programme.
