Graduate Profile


Emiola Osho


School: School of Language Studies and Applied Linguistics

Campus: Canterbury

I graduated with a BA in French and Politics and Governance in 2016 from CCCU. Currently, I am working as an English Language Assistant with the British Council in France and in September I will continue my studies at University of Westminster, where I have enrolled in an MA in Translation and Interpreting.

My French improved immensely in the 3 years of my degree, which was mainly due to our lecturers’ commitment to our learning. The lectures were more like seminars, which meant that we were able to actively participate and our individual learning needs were met. I really enjoyed the core modules, particularly Translation, where I discovered my interest in the subject through the class work and projects. The other core modules really helped to hone my written and spoken French.

The course differs from many other language degrees, in that it lasts 3 years. There were two options for the residence abroad requirement; we chose between spending a year studying in France as part of the Erasmus programme or working in France in the summer between the second and third year. I opted for the latter and worked in a youth hostel in Marseille where I developed confidence in my linguistic skills, which I was able to use to my advantage in the third year.

The School also arranged two educational trips to France. In first year we went to Lille and in second year we completed an exchange with students from Bolougne-Sur-Mer. For me, these trips were essential in bringing French to life.
