French is an official language in 29 countries, including France, Canada, Switzerland, Monaco, Luxembourg, Senegal, Côte d’Ivoire, Haiti, and Belgium. Studying French at University level will allow you to enhance your knowledge of French language and culture. You will gain insights into aspects of life in French and Francophone society; you will also improve your comprehension of contemporary French idiom and your oral and written communication skills in terms of fluency and appropriate linguistic register.

Departments of French throughout the country provide expertise in a wide range of subjects, including literature, cultural history, cinema, visual culture, translation and linguistics. As part of your degree, you get to spend a year abroad (in French-speaking country) in order to refine your knowledge of the language and deepen your insights into the target culture.

What is JAMB UTME subject combination (subject needed) for French?
You should aim for a score of 180 – 200 and above in JAMB UTME to be on a safe side (Just an advice) because anything short of that may deny you of Admission/Post UTME. Of course, if you have a score below 180, you can consider College of Education or Polytechnic… Please note – JAMB is not the only option for admission. If you’re having troubles JAMB UTME maybe it’s time you pass through IJBM, JUBEB, ND or Predegree. JAMB UTME subject combination (subject to write in jamb) for French are

  1. French
