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.
