Japanese Studies, BA Hons FullTime

The Japanese teachers are absolutely lovely and work so hard to help us learn Japanese, but due to the pandemic and our course being rearranged many of students' language skills have suffered. I have also grown a lot throughout this course and realised Japan is not somewhere I actually want to work in the future, so right now I'm at a loss in terms of my career path. read more

Japanese is a relatively hard language to learn with a lot of content to unravel but personally i think the course tutors do an amazing job at helping students to learn the language effectively and efficiently. Moreover, we also get a wide variety of module choices that relate to our course which help us understand more cultural aspects of Japan and East Asia. Overall a great choice if you’re passionate about languages. read more

While the job prospects are quite good for UoS SEAS department, the language courses are nightmarishly intense and once your grades start to slip you have a chance of transferring to East Asian Studies, and no year abroad as the ultimate price to pay. It’s somewhat rewarding but only the strong survive, and if you want to do that, best to develop and workaholic persona. read more

The teachers tend to be unhelpful, give you more work than you can handle at once and look down upon you when you start cracking. I've heard more sarcastic remarks coming out of the mouth of my Japanese teacher than I have from any other person. Course organisation is a mess and they made no effort to change it no matter how much we complained. The only redeeming factor is that by the end of this whole ordeal, you'll be able to have at least some sort of communication in Japanese. Too bad the drop-out rate is 80%. read more
