Overview

You will study the language and the rich culture of both countries, developing a critical appreciation of contemporary issues. You’ll study China’s rapidly developing economy, its political influence, art and society. Japanese modules cover issues relating to the environment, ethnic relations and employment.

You will spend the second year studying at a leading university in China. More than just an opportunity to test your language skills, this experience will broaden your horizons and change your life.

Please note we only teach Japanese from scratch. If you already have a qualification in the language, we can’t offer you a place.
