French Studies at the Open University: Pointers to the Future
This chapter discusses French Studies at the Open University. There are close to 10,000 language students a year, which translates into over 3,000 full-time equivalent student (FTEs) numbers. In terms of recruitment, whether actual students or FTEs, the Open University is also the largest French department in the UK. This chapter describes the university's distinctive and innovative approach to teaching French, and its related research activities. It begins by setting language learning in the context of supported distance education, and concludes by proposing wider interuniversity collaboration in the context of globalising higher education and falling UK interest in degree-level language study.
