Undergraduate Studies: French Languages & Literatures

The courses offered by the French Section are designed for students of French as a foreign language. Students for whom French is a second or home language will be accepted only under certain conditions, and after prior discussion with the Section Head.

A student who has not taken French at secondary school will be admitted to the Initial French course (SLL1060F, SLL1061S). Such a student may major after a further 4 semesters of French (SLL2060F, SLL2061S, SLL3060F, SLL3061S or SLL3084F and SLL3085S).

A student qualifies for admission to French Language & Literature II (SLL2060F, SLL2061S) if (i) within the preceding 3 years, s/he has obtained at least a C symbol in French for the Matriculation examination, or 5 in the NSC (or a course recognised as equivalent) or (ii) the Head of the Section is satisfied that s/he is able to perform the work of the class. Such a student will major after a further 2 semesters: French Language & Literature IIIA and B (SLL3060F, SLL3061S) or Business French (SLL3084F, SLL3085S).
