French - Rhiannon

I chose to read French at King’s because of its reputation as a prestigious institution that has one of the best Modern Languages departments in the country. I wanted to be taught by world-class experts that would inspire me through the teaching of a wide range of modules. I also wanted to study in the heart of London - where better than on the beautiful Strand Campus?
