Isabelle Ruegg Alter

Teaching Fellow in French



After studying German and History and gaining the equivalent of an MA from the University of Lausanne (French-speaking Switzerland), I qualified as a language teacher and subsequently held teaching in different schools and universities in Switzerland, Austria and Germany.

I started teaching French at the School of Modern Languages in 2008. Since then, I have taught French language at all UG stages, with a particular focus on and interest in the second year language module FRE2061. I have also been actively involved in the University Wide Language Programme (UWLP) since its creation in 2013 and was appointed as its Director in July 2018.
