    French is one of the most beautiful romance languages. Outside of France it is spoken as far afield as Canada, the Seychelles, Madagascar and Mali. It is one of the official languages of the United Nations, and an important language in the EU. A working knowledge of the French language, and of French culture, will give you a head start in the business world. Combining Business Administration with French enables you to gain a deeper understanding of European business, which is an ideal option for those considering an international career.

    We offer you opportunity to spend a year studying or working abroad in a French-speaking country, where you can experience the language and business culture first hand, make some useful contacts and practise your French language skills.

    Business Administration gives you the academic foundation you need for a career in business or management by equipping you with the fundamental skills and knowledge essential for managing the key areas of organisations: accounting, human resource management, quantitative methods, marketing, strategy and operations management.

    Kent Business School students and staff come from a variety of backgrounds and nationalities, which leads to a multicultural learning environment with a supportive and flexible approach to teaching.

    So this joint honours gives you the benefits of cultural understanding of a humanities degree, language skills, and business knowledge for the world of work.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
