WHY FRENCH?

French can be studied in the University of Limerick at advanced level. You will learn about French society, literature and culture as well as improving your language skills. You will use a wide range of materials to aid your study, including textbooks, newspapers, film, radio, TV and internet.

CAN I GO ABROAD?

Yes! You can study and/or work in France or Belgium during your degree.

WHAT CAREERS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO ME IF I STUDY FRENCH?

Language graduates get good jobs as, by studying French, you acquire a whole range of skills that can be applied to a great variety of professions. In particular, you will have very good communication skills, which are highly valued by employers. Learning a language gives you another way of looking at, analysing and interpreting the world, so you are automatically more attractive to potential employers. As a result, language graduates can choose from a variety of careers and professions, for example:

  • teaching (not just second level, but also professional language training)
  • the public service (because you have shown language learning potential you may be recruited to learn another language)
  • tourism
  • international business (marketing, finance, personnel), translating, localising and interpreting
  • the media and information industry
