I don't recall any university which asks for a foreign language at GCSE/A-Level, for non-language related courses.

Both Russel Group universities and Oxbridge generally ask for 3 A-Levels (excl General Studies) at a specific grade (A*AA/AAB/ABB etc). You can read up on specific courses online and what entry requirements they have.

If you look at the entry requirements on any course page on any University website, it will tell you exactly what qualifications you need - both GCSE and A levels. You dont need to have done French GCSE until its relevant to the Uni course.

Here are some examples - this is what the entry requirements are :
Law at Oxford Brookes - A Levels: BCC, GCSE English grade 4.
Business Studies at West London - A levels BBC, GCSE English and Maths grade 4
Neither of these courses fr instance, mention GCSE French.

You might like to go and see the Careers teacher at your school for some advice - they are likely to be better informed than your French teacher!

Thats not correct. No language at GCSE needed to study law or business at uni.

That teacher’s advice is so wrong it’s scary. You don’t need a language GCSE. The only uni that even says they want it for Law is UCL and even they say if you don’t have it when you apply you can take a language course in Year 1 as an alternative

From what I recall, the only uni that wants a language is UCL....your teacher probably just wants you to take French for whatever reason but not because of that. Or maybe their views towards uni are outdated, some of my teachers while I was in y11 looking at what A-Levels to take threw some outdated advice at me.
