Department of Languages & Cultures: French Programme

If you are thinking about an international career - or you are keen to travel - now is the perfect time to gain some skills in French.

French is a major international language. Not only is it the mother tongue of people living in several European nations, it is also widely spoken in parts of Canada, Africa and the Pacific - making it a particularly relevant and useful language for New Zealanders to know.

You can enrol in our beginner level course FREN131 with NO previous knowledge of French.

If you have previous knowledge of French, contact us and we will help you choose the most suitable courses and degree pathway - Email:
