We are ranked second for French and in the top five for Iberian languages by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020. We are also in the top ten for modern languages and linguistics in the Guardian University Guide 2020. We are ranked in the top 10 for creative writing in the Complete University Guide 2019 and also achieved 100 per cent overall satisfaction for French Studies in the National Student Survey (NSS) 2019.
