G1R1 BSc Mathematics with French (4 years)

During this Maths with French course, you will normally spend the third year of this four-year degree programme studying mathematics at one of our partner universities, where your chosen language is normally spoken; see the lists of relevant institutions below. Your stay abroad will usually take place under the Erasmus scheme. Erasmus students normally qualify for an Erasmus Mobility grant, designed to help with the increased cost of living abroad.

Studying mathematics abroad gives you the unique opportunity to immerse yourself completely in the local language and culture, both academically and socially. You will become highly fluent in your chosen language, and gain a deeper understanding of the social, economic and political make-up of your host country. While at Southampton your language training will concentrate on improving your linguistic skills of listening, understanding, speaking and writing.

Introducing your degree

Do you love languages as well as Mathematics? Are you interested in the opportunity to study Mathematics abroad? Apply for the BSc in Mathematics and French at the University of Southampton and you will be able to study both French and Mathematics at an advanced level during your degree.


You will spend your third year abroad either in France or Belgium studying Mathematics and will have the unique experience of making friends and enjoying life abroad while studying social and human aspects of your host country as part of your degree. At the end of your degree you will not only have a technical background in Mathematics but also experience of working and studying in an international environment while speaking French, qualities which are in great professional demand.

What is this? (More Information) This information is based on historical data and may have been aggregated. Find out more.

As people in different countries in Europe and in the world work together more and more closely, it is important to understand from first-hand experience how other countries and cultures work, and to be comfortable in a foreign language and culture. At the same time, as business, political decision making, public and private sector management and the social sciences are becoming more quantitative in their methods, making mathematical models and simulations, in the widest sense, and understanding and interpreting such models and results, is also crucial in ever more lines of work. Therefore combining the study of mathematics with that of a foreign language and culture, and a year of study abroad, prepares you for many things you will find in your work after university. This is a four year course in which the third year is normally spent abroad in a country where the language of study is normally spoken (normally in a Mathematics Department of a University).

Transfer to this programme is normally only possible early in Semester 1 from a number of other programmes in the School.

Costs associated with this course

Students are responsible for meeting the cost of essential textbooks, and of producing such essays, assignments, laboratory reports and dissertations as are required to fulfil the academic requirements for each programme of study.

There will also be further costs for the following, not purchasable from the University:

TypeDescription
EquipmentApproved calculators: Candidates may use calculators in the examination room only as specified by the University and as permitted by the rubric of individual examination papers. The University approved models are Casio FX-570 and Casio FX-85GT Plus. These may be purchased from any source and no longer need to carry the University logo.Candidates may use calculators in the examination room only as specified by the University and as permitted by the rubric of individual examination papers. The University approved models are Casio FX-570 and Casio FX-85GT Plus. These may be purchased from any source and no longer need to carry the University logo.
StationeryYou will be expected to provide your own day-to-day stationery items, e.g. pens, pencils, notebooks, etc. Any specialist stationery items will be specified under the Additional Costs tab of the relevant module profile.
BooksWhere a module specifies core texts these should generally be available on the reserve list in the library. However due to demand, students may prefer to buy their own copies. These can be purchased from any source. Some modules suggest reading texts as optional background reading. The library may hold copies of such texts, or alternatively you may wish to purchase your own copies. Although not essential reading, you may benefit from the additional reading materials for the module.
EquipmentIT: Software licenses: The software required for the programme is available on all public workstations on campus, and accessible from your own computer via VPN.
Printing and copyingIn the majority of cases, coursework such as essays, projects and dissertations is likely to be submitted on line. However, there are some items where it is not possible to submit on line and students will be asked to provide a printed copy. A list of the University printing costs can be found here: https://www.southampton.ac.uk/printcentre/copyrooms/service.page For students undertaking modules with a high mathematical content, some assessed work will be submitted in handwritten hard copy format. Students are advised that they will need to bear the costs of the required stationery.
PlacementsStudents on placement programmes can expect to cover costs for health and travel insurance, accommodation and living expenses, travel costs and visa costs. This will vary depending on which country you are travelling to. Specific details on what additional costs there will be are detailed in the individual module profiles which can be found under the modules tab of the programmes details of your programme.
PlacementsModern Languages Residence Abroad: As you know, the ML third year includes a period of study or work abroad as a compulsory element of a four year degree, and as a result, all students pay reduced home tuition fees to Southampton for their third year (currently 15% for home and EU students, 40% for International Students) irrespective of what placement they take up. However, as happens whilst you are in Southampton, students are expected to pay their own travel expenses, accommodation and other living expenses. So that you can assess the viability of the different options available to you, the following outlines their general cost implications, but please do bear in mind that these may vary enormously from student to student depending on what placement is selected and where it is located. Should you need further information, please contact the relevant RA language coordinator. Students studying or working in Europe: Students are eligible for a small grant through the British Council, which is means tested against their salary (if relevant) and which varies every year (as a guide, students this year receive around 350-400 Euros per month). The only exceptions to this are students who currently live full- time with their parents and for whom household income is above the threshold. British Council students also receive a monthly salary (this varies country to country) and are expected to pay for their International Child Protection Certificate (ICPC) checks, which are mandatory and currently cost £45. University students tend to receive a slightly higher grant than those who working for the British Council since they are not in receipt of a salary. They pay no tuition fees to their host university. Work placement students may or may not be paid, and their grant is calculated accordingly. Students studying or working outside Europe: These students are not eligible for the British Council grant but may be able to apply for funding to support their travel etc. through the International Office. All students are expected to pay for their own student visas; costs vary from country to country. Students studying in Latin America or China will generally have to pay host university fees, although typically these are no more than £100 for the academic year. Students working in Latin America are not generally paid a stipend. Some receive free accommodation, travel or meals as a work benefit, others (generally in voluntary work) often also have to pay to join the scheme and be eligible to work do not receive this. Students taking place in the Mexico link receive a bursary.

In some cases you'll be able to choose modules (which may have different costs associated with that module) which will change the overall cost of a programme to you. Please also ensure you read the section on additional costs in the University’s Fees, Charges and Expenses Regulations in the University Calendar available at www.calendar.soton.ac.uk.

The Department uses a wide variety of modern learning and teaching methods involving small group tutorial work and computer based learning that builds on what you learn in lectures. Assessment is varied enabling you to demonstrate your strengths and show what you have learnt. Students are provided with a copy of the computer algebra package MAPLE that they can use on their own personal computers to assist their studies.

The University provides a wide range of modern services for learning and support, including a well-stocked modern library, a large number of computer workstations giving ready access to the internet, a Careers Service, a Job Shop and a Students Advice and Information Centre.
