For the Law with European studies course at Oxford, could someone please enlighten me as to what level of proficiency in French would be required for access to said course, please?

"Course II students spend their third year of study at a university in France, Germany, Italy, or Spain (studying French, German, Italian, or Spanish law) ... There are language requirements (normally an A grade at A-level or equivalent) for entry to the course for France, Germany, Italy and Spain"

and

"Candidates for Law with Law Studies in Europe who are applying for the French, German, Italian or Spanish law options may be given an oral test in the relevant European language at the time of interview"

So I would guess at pretty fluent but not near-native.

After Mods the Law Fac sends round emails offering places on the course to people who do Course 1 (i.e. no language.) The Spanish & German ones said straight off that A at A2 or equivalent would be necessary to apply, but the French one didn't. Having a B at AS I eagerly asked if I could still apply if I faithfully promised to 'learn lots of French' - and I was immediately told applying wasn't worth my time :p: The reason they gave was that it is expected that applicants who begin Course 2 will have an A at their language already and so it would be unfair to drop their standards for people like me who were attempting to blag their way into a year abroad!

As the posters above me have already said, you should be predicted/already have an A in French A-Level. I applied for the German equivalent, and the oral test required more or less the same level of fluency in/understanding of German that is needed in the A2 Level oral exam.

It's worth noting that although you need an A at A-level in the subject, Oxford only test it through a short oral- there's no written element to it (or wasn't when I interviewed for it a couple of years ago).

Also, there is no language requirement if you want to go to Leiden. It is pretty competitive to get into though.
