The School of East Asian Studies at Sheffield is well known for its excellent language training. We teach Chinese from scratch, so you don’t need previous experience. And you will be taught by native speakers in small groups. This intensive teaching is balanced with modules on China’s rich culture, its political influence, and its economy. You will spend your second year at Nanjing University, one of China’s best universities.
The Sheffield University Management School , where you will spend roughly half your time, is triple-accredited (by AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS) which puts it among the top one per cent of management schools in the world. It’s also one of the biggest departments in the university, with students from every part of the world, so you can expect a vibrant, multicultural atmosphere.
The course is a bold first step towards a career in East Asia. All over Europe there are great opportunities for graduates who understand the region, its languages and cultures. Our graduates work in government and diplomacy, media, the arts, and international business.
