Welcome to Cambridge French

French studies in Cambridge is one of the largest groupings of its kind in the country, and the French course one of the most varied. Many members of the group are leading researchers in their specialist fields.

We try to get to know as many students as possible and we make every effort to help students get the best from our courses. Enquiries should be directed in the first instance to the Secretary of French, Esther Palmer erp26@cam.ac.uk, but we hope that you will find all staff working in French very approachable.

We are extremely proud of the reputation of Cambridge French which has consistently been judged outstanding in both teaching and research. As you join us, we wish you every success.
