French for academic purposes

French for academic purposes

Tuesday 6, 13, 20 and 27 June, 2-4pm| Courtauld Institute, the Strand, London.

This training is designed to allow students to improve their French for academic purposes. It will focus on engaging with written academic French and be tailored as much as possible for the needs of the group.

The group will meet weekly for a two hour seminar each of the four weeks of the course. Before this students will be expected to watch a one-hour introductory video and undertake some preparatory activities.

This is the first of four training courses in French. The other three will cover Anglo-Norman, late Medieval and Renaissance French and will be running in the academic year 2017-18 – they will be advertised soon. Students can sign up to more than one course, for instance French for academic purposes and Renaissance French, or, indeed, for all four courses!

Training is being delivered by Dr Alice Hazard. Alice did her PhD research on the face as an index of interiority and representation in twelfth- and thirteenth-century French literature. Her research interests also include modern French theory, and she is currently working on a project researching language training provision in UK universities.

WHO: CHASE students who already have basic French and need to improve their skills and engagement with modern academic French. This is not a beginners’ language course, but a specialist course focused on academic language. Completing all preparation is an essential component of participation.

If you are not sure about your level of language, please email the programme co-ordinator, Dr Amy Blakeway, University of Kent,

Application: please use the application form below. Spaces are limited! Applications will close at 12 noon on Friday 26th May and applicants will be informed if they have a place by Tuesday 29th May. A short questionnaire designed to gauge the level of the course will be sent to students who gain a place on the programme, this is in order to cater the course to the interests of the group as much as possible.

The training is funded by CHASE Cohort Development Fund and is free to attend. Research students may wish to claim travel expenses through their institution or funding body where such provision is made.
