French, Certificate/Advanced Certificate
The nature of the Certificate/Advanced Certificate languages programme enables students to join at higher levels, e.g. post-GCSE, and achieve the Certificate or Advanced Certificate in a shorter space of time. Students with no prior knowledge of the language may join at Course 1 and would normally qualify for the Certificate after three years' part-time study, or the Advanced Certificate after four years. Candidates with a GCSE or equivalent in the language may join at Course 2 and qualify after two years' part-time study for the Certificate and three years for the Advanced. Candidates with an A-level in the language and evidence of time spent in the country of the language studied may be eligible to join the Advanced Certificate programme at Course 3 and qualify after two years' part-time study.
You may also study a language as part of your degree. The combined studies programme has been validated as a three-year degree.
