    So where is SEAS now?

    The lovely Arts Tower is nearly ready to re-open, but the Orientation Week tour guide insisted that the department will remain in Shearwood Road forever. :confused:

    Also hi from Sheffield. Sure is an awesome city.
    And Internet access now works n_n

    Yeah, I noticed that nearly ALL the modules were in Shearwood or other places. Only the Korean language modules seemed to be in the Arts Tower

    The lecture theatres in the Arts Tower were open last year - I had lectures there. Those are in the basement of the Arts Tower though. I've heard that the upper floors might just be used for admin. I don't think SEAS is moving back there, although I haven't heard that that is definite.

    Haha yeah travelling isn't t exactly easy for us then. On the open day I went by Megabus which was quite cheap and it took me 6 hours. I can't go by Megabus now because I'm taking so much luggage. How did you get there on open day?

    Oh well! At least we have somewhere for classes.

    My mum and step-dad took a day off work and we went by car, which is lucky because when I looked at Megabus it said it would be 9 hours there and went to Leeds, so I'd have to find a way to Sheffield from there. I'd also have had to stay up there over 3 days so I'd actually be able to go to the Open Day in time.
    Not sure if I can get a lift each time if I do get in though... but I suppose I'll have to worry about that when it comes to it.

    Oh no, 9 hours was if I went by Megabus. By car it was about 5 hours. But still, waking up and leaving at 6am and getting home at 9pm is a *****. I slept most of the way there, but the way back was horrible.

    It is, they say it will be open this month and complete in December but the classrooms (particularly the higher floors) belong to the architecture department.
    The building next door is where all the magic happens. Western Bank library is epic.

    I've seen the list of books in Western Library on Muse *_* and you are right. Ten gems ALREADY I that I MUST borrow when I get my UCARD!

    Does that mean that the timetables haven't been updated yet? Nearly all the classes on the timetable seem to be in Shearwood or the Hicks Building.

    I'm still yet to apply (just started Year 13), but my UCAS predicted grades are AAA, so I'm hopeful I'll get an offer.

    If there's anybody in this thread who's already doing the course, would they be able to give some detail on how difficult they found learning the Kanji and how much they had to learn per week and such?

    I'm applying for both Korean and Japanese next month and keep flipping between the two and had lately been leaning towards Korean, and I think a big factor in that is how often I hear about how hard the Japanese course is and its high drop-out rate, and it is the prospect of Kanji that is worrying me quite a bit as well (and is also one reason I'm not thinking too much about Chinese as that's ALL Chinese characters of course). Although I'm thinking that if I get to work learning Kanji from when I (hopefully) get an offer to when I (hopefully) start the course, then it might make things easier for me. I've taught myself a bit of Japanese so I already know Kana and some grammar and vocabulary, but when it comes to Kanji I just lose motivation (although I think I'm just yet to find a good method for learning it, or maybe the fact I'm self-teaching and not actually required to learn it for a class so I'm able to just leave it might also be a reason).
    However, after the Open Day and some more looking around I've been slowly coming to the conclusion that even the University doesn't care about Korean as the guy at the Open Day regularly neglected to mention it and was instead all about Chinese and Japanese, and they also don't even have a paragraph about the country on the course page on the website like with Chinese and Japanese, it just seems they're only offering it to round up their East Asian department. There's also the fact that the media and just things in general are all about China and Japan with little care or mention for Korea. So I think I may just have to man up and go for Japanese despite the apparent high difficulty of it, although my particularly anti-social nature may mean I can just happily lock myself in my room and spend all my time working :P

    Well that was more long-winded than I'd hoped it would end up.

    I'm moving up to Sheffield tomorrow - excited but dreading it at the same time. I hope it all goes smoothly and I don't want to just drop my bags and run home again. I get homesick very easily...
