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 Department of French, where you will spend roughly thirty per cent of your time, is one of the UK’s best, second only to Oxford for research quality.
The course is a bold first step towards a career in South 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.
