About

The French programme from University College London (UCL) encompasses a vast array of expertise and a great variety of approaches to the study of French and Francophone literature, culture and politics.

Overview

UCL has a renowned tradition in both teaching and research in French dating back to its foundation in 1826 and continuing to the present day. UCL was the first university in the country to create a chair of French and this was one of the first chairs of any modern language to be established. 

Students with a doctorate in French from the Department of French at University College London (UCL) share in this reputation for high-quality scholarship and research.

Why study this degree at UCL?

The School of European Languages, Culture and Society (SELCS) at UCL provides a rich research environment for students of French and Francophone culture within an interdisciplinary context. Students can draw on expertise from across the university, in particular from the Faculty of Arts & Humanities, the Social & Historical Sciences, the School of European Languages and Cultures, and the Centre for Multidisciplinary and Intercultural Inquiry.

Students are supported by a dynamic research culture, a stimulating environment, and excellent opportunities for research training. The school and the French Department house numerous seminars and guest lectures and researchers have access to world-class libraries not only at UCL but also in the University of London and the British Library.
