Overview

This balanced programme of language study and lecture-based modules helps you develop a critical understanding of Korea. You’ll learn Korean from scratch and spend a year at Yonsei University in Seoul.

Along with your language study, you’ll have a choice of modules that cover East Asia as a region, highlighting Korean issues in a regional or global context. Modules on contemporary Japan cover issues relating to the environment, ethnic relations and employment.

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