Any UCD student taking French via the School of Languages & Literatures (SLL) must have a minimum HC3 in Leaving Cert French (or equivalent). In addition to this SLL have School Language Regulations requiring students to have completed certain French modules to move from one Stage to the next so your student must be careful with the subject she chooses.

However, French is also offered via the UCD Applied Language Centre which may suit better as they often offer classes later in the day than the normal timetable – full details of their courses on their website www.ucd.ie/alc
