Have you considered learning French as part of your USP degree programme?

French is widely spoken in the Pacific and across the world, so this language can open up new opportunities for your future, or just give you a new and interesting challenge while you study.

In partnership with Alliance Française de Suva, USP offers the following French language courses:

FR101: Introduction to the French Language
FR201: French Language 2
FR301: French Language 3
FR302: French for Business


Thanks to a grant from L’Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF) to support the development of online versions of these courses, you can now study French from any location! All four courses can be taken both in face-to-face mode at Laucala Campus and in online mode at all campuses. You will learn through a combination of online activities and live classes (either via Zoom from anywhere or face-to-face at Laucala). To participate in the online mode, you must be able to attend weekly Zoom classes with a working microphone and audio.

You can take French courses as electives within any programme, or you can take a complete Minor in French alongside a Single Major in another subject.

You will be taught by a native speaking French teacher, using interactive and innovative methods based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. You may also have the chance to sit for an internationally-recognised diploma in French, in addition to credit for your USP degree.
