Course summary

Learn two major world languages from beginners’ level, experience studying abroad and deepen your understanding of the modern world. Arabic is one of the world’s major languages, and you’ll develop language skills while gaining an understanding of the cultural, religious and historical contexts that have shaped the region. Japan is one of the world’s biggest economies, home to a rich culture and a varied, changing society, which you’ll explore while building your proficiency in Japanese. You’ll spend two years abroad, with a year in Japan and a year in an Arabic speaking country giving you first-hand experience of the languages and cultures. We teach Arabic and Japanese from beginners’ level, but if you already have some knowledge of either language we can normally accommodate you. A combination of core and optional modules will give you a firm grounding in the languages while you study the topics that suit your interests. This course is a five-year degree.
