French at Oxford
Oxford has one of the largest groups of graduate students in French in Britain. The University has a thriving research culture in French and a lively graduate community to match it. The full range of French Studies is covered both in the one-year Masters course (known as the M.St) and at doctoral level, reflecting the interests of the members of the French Sub-faculty. The Sub-faculty itself is the largest French department in the UK, and is one of only two to have scored 5* in successive RAE exercises.
At any one time, there is an average of over 50 graduate students in French, of whom 10-15 will be taking the one-year M.St. or two-year M.Phil. courses, and around 40 will be registered for doctoral work. Graduate students come from all over the world, not just the UK, or even Europe.
