French

Main areas of research strength include: Modern literature and thought (Christopher Fynsk, Nadia Kiwan); comparative literature (Christopher Fynsk); contemporary french politics and society (Nadia Kiwan); francophone literature and film (Nadia Kiwan); mediaeval studies (Glynn Hesketh); French poetry (Clémence O'Connor), French cinema(Ed Welch), 17th and 18th French literature (Bruno Tribout) and French novel from 19th - 21st century (Aine Larkin). We also welcome interdisciplinary research involving more than one Department; recent postgraduates have, for example, worked on topics combining French with philosophy, English, film and history of art. There are important interdisciplinary research fora within the College of Arts and Social Sciences which are open to postgraduate students, as well as to staff.

Entry requirements

Minimum 2nd Class Honours degree or equivalent in relevant subject.
Applicants to the MPhil or PhD must provide a detailed research proposal and two academic references from their most recent academic institution.
Even if you have been educated in the medium of English you must meet our English Language requirements (certain countries may be exempted from this requirement). This programme requires that you meet the 'Postgraduate Standard' level of English proficiency. If you are in doubt about your proficiency in English, contact the British Council office or its equivalent in your country. If your first language is not English, it is important that your proficiency in English is good in order for you to study successfully at the University of Aberdeen. Without this ability you will find great difficulty in understanding lectures, producing written work and sitting examinations.
