    So I've been accepted into both the University of Edinburgh and the University of Glasgow to study English Literature and French. I like the look of both courses and I really would be happy to attend either university but at Glasgow the French course is 5 years while at Edinburgh it is 4. Looking deeper into why, I found that when you do your third year abroad for French with Glasgow, you put your other subject (for me, English literature) on hold then when you come back you resume your next two years as normal. Do you think this is a better idea rather than squashing the year abroad and my commitments to English together at Edinburgh? It would be nice to be able to work over in France while I'm there instead of piled over study books? If you could inbox me any advice or information I haven't received, and how to tackle joint honours with a language in your third year at Edinburgh that would be absolutely brilliant as I'd probably rather talk in private! Thank you so much
