2. Admission to the minor
Version A of the programme is open to all Bachelors (except Bachelors in Modern Languages and Literatures: General and Bachelors in Modern and Ancient Languages and Literatures who have access to version B), provided their main programme permits and they pass a grammar test. This test, which involves a dictation exercise and the recognition of syntactic functions, will take place in the first week of the year.
Version B of the programme is open exclusively to Bachelors in Modern Languages and Literatures: General (who have chosen French as their Romance language) and Bachelors in Modern and Ancient Languages and Literatures.
3. Enrolling on the minor and checking enrolment
Second year of Bachelor's degree
Once students have enrolled for their year of study, they can enrol on their minor online. Students repeating Year 2 are automatically enrolled on the same minor.
Third year of Bachelor's degree
When enrolling for the third year, students are automatically enrolled on the second part of their minor. The same applies to students who are repeating their third year.
Requests for exemption to this rule should be submitted to the study adviser for the relevant faculty.
4. Changes to the minor enrolment
Students who wish to make any changes to their enrolment choices must submit a request to their own faculty's study adviser, stating their reasons, before 10 October.
