    I'm slightly confused at the moment as to whether I should change my application from doing the 3 year Biology course at York to doing the 4 year course with a year in Europe (france).

    I did french at AS level and got an A but dropped it in my second year but am pretty sure with some revision over the summer I would be able to remind myself of the language since I am still communicating with a penpal.

    Could anyone who's done or doing a course with a year in Europe give me some advice? Thanks!

    A friend of mine did the year in Europe at the uni of York. I don't think she went to France though. She enjoyed the year and found it really good experience. It really depends on which uni you go to because in some cases you just do a project which is great prep for your final year. At some unis you also take some modules which is also great because in your final year you will have to juggle teaching and your project. I think she even had the option of doing some more advanced masters level courses. I think knowing the language is important because even though the teaching is in the English and the language of most labs is English you may miss out on the social side of things if you don't speak the language.

    I don't think she ended up learning the language in the end. She is doing a PhD in France at the moment though. It's taken her a while: maybe about 6 months to learn the language but said she was miserable till she did.
