    From what I remember, the interview is really relaxed. I was asked about the stuff on my personal statement- so like I was asked to talk about the films I'd mentioned, the books I'd mentioned, the exchanges I'd been on. It kind of felt like a mixture between a GCSE and AS speaking exam if I'm honest.. mine was mostly in French, but that will depend on who interviews you and your level of fluency.

    Why did you drop out if you don't mind me asking?
    There were many reasons, mostly I didn't like how badly organised the course was: for example, there was an exam at the end of first term and nobody was told the layout of the paper or explicitly what it was going to be on before sitting it.
    The majority of people I spoke to didn't necessarily like the course there, they were just putting up with it because it was in Paris- which, in the end, wasn't enough for me. I, personally, found the course content really boring.
    Also, it is a very small university, which I personally did not like. It was very cliquey in my opinion and I didn't feel like I was being treated any more like an adult than I was in sixth form. But whether you like this will be down to personal preference, others liked the small experience where everyone knows everything about everyone...
    Also, I decided that I no longer just wanted to study French, so I've reapplied for modern languages/ translation degrees.
