University of Leeds has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
In this varied and challenging degree you’ll learn Chinese and Japanese from beginners’ level. You'll also explore the history and culture of China, Japan and the wider Asia Pacific region, and graduate with valuable skills for a global career. Core and optional modules will build your skills in both Chinese and Japanese and introduce you to the culture and history of the regions. But the most exciting element of the degree is the chance to spend one year in Japan and another in China, improving your language skills and gaining first-hand experience of local culture. You could study East Asian religions or Japanese cultural history, the rise of the non-profit sector in contemporary China or the complex dynamics of Sino-Japanese relations. It’s a great opportunity to develop language skills and gain an insight into two of the world’s biggest economies. This degree allows you to learn both languages from beginners’ level, although if you already have some knowledge of the languages, we can normally accommodate you.
