I was considering doing a uni degree and then learning French on the side (if the university doesn't do it it's not going to impact my decision but the universities I've seen so far and like do it) and when looking at universities that offer that it says you can get 60 credits from doing so but what does that mean?

Does it impact your final grade in any way and if not why does it matter?

You need 360 credits in total (at least) to get an honours degree, so 120 credits per year in a 3-year course, 60 credits per semester.

You get all of your credits for a module if you pass usually. The modules during your honours years (so from 2nd year and above in England and Wales, 3rd year and above in Scotland) affect your overall degree classification.
