Sheffield is the only major university outside London with expertise in China, Japan and Korea. We teach Chinese and Japanese 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 the culture, politics, and economics of the two countries. You will spend your second year at Nanjing University, one of China’s best universities.
