Course summary

Immerse yourself in the study of Chinese or Japanese culture and history and prepare yourself for a career working and interacting with organisations in East Asia.

Course overview

This four-year Chinese Studies or Japanese Studies degree immerses you in the study of the culture and society of China or Japan. It focuses on developing your languages skills and building an appreciation of different cultures.

You'll gain an in-depth insight into how culture, cinema, history, politics and society shape the countries where your chosen language is spoken. You'll develop the knowledge and understanding you need to engage with people in their native language.

You'll graduate as a confident linguist, in your chosen East Asian language, ready to embark on your career journey as a global citizen.

You will be well positioned to take advantage of exciting new career opportunities emerging from Britain's growing connections with East Asia, as China's economic and political power continues to rise alongside Japan's diplomatic importance.

Teaching methods

The majority of language modules are taught by native speakers. You also work in language laboratories and undertake self-study in our award-winning Language Resource Centre.

Your future

Ability in languages is highly regarded by employers across all sectors, including industry and business. Employers value the linguistic skills and cultural awareness of graduates.

With ever more European and international connections, language skills are important and give you a real advantage in applying for a wide range of graduate jobs.

For some graduates teaching is a popular career choice, undertaking primary and secondary Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) or teaching English abroad. Others go into jobs where their language skills are desirable, such as the media, sales, e-commerce, and areas of finance.
