masters in France? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I already posted this in the International Study section as well but have a feeling more people might see it here -

    Hi! I'm graduating next year from Oxford with a degree in French and German. I don't think that my level of French will be comparable to that of my German when I leave, so I'm looking into doing a masters in France when I graduate, firstly because I know that most are pretty cheap, and secondly because it would be a good opportunity to study something practical and improve my language at the same time - I don't want to do further studies in literature or anything like that!

    I was looking into a law masters but the unis I've researched (Sciences-Po, Assas, Lyon II plus others) require a first LLB before you can do an LLM - it appears that there isn't a conversion course you can do. I would ideally like to study something social sciences based, but my first degree was purely lit - based, and I get the impression that this would be a problem unless I wanted to do more 'arty' subjects. And I don't - I'm very aware of the fact that I'll need to get an actual job sooner rather than later.

    So I guess what I'm wondering is if anyone who knows a little more about the French uni system could advise me on where I could look next (ideally somewhere with an international rep) and what degree area(s) I could look into (that would take me!). Thanks in advance, very grateful for any advice people might have!

    You should first look at what you want to do, professionally speaking! Which area, which occupation? In 5, 10 years?

    Once you're decided, we'll be able to help you

    I will ask my fiancé for you about conversion courses, master's etc (he's French) and I will let you know
Do you like carrot cake?
