    Hiya ^^

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I wasn't really sure where to post it.

    Apologies aside I am extremely interested in working and living in Japan. I am not entirely sure of what I want to do, or if I definitely want to work in Japan.

    I am trying to learn Japanese independently at the moment, and I was thinking about doing a degree in Japanese so I can eventually be fluent in the language. I got ABB for my A-Levels, which included psychology, English literature and media studies. So I figured my options were:

    -Teaching English
    -Doing something media related
    -Practicing psychology

    I have already done some research into practicing psychology in Japan, and I'm really excited at the prospect!

    So I've started looking at universities. I was thinking I could do degrees in Japanese and in psychology. I know this would be a tremendous workload, but I am willing to work hard for it.

    Anyway, my point is - does anyone know anything about this? Can you give me some tips? Is this a realistic goal?

    Also, does anybody know of any universities that would allow me to study both Japanese and Psychology? I can't find anything!

    Thanks in advance ^__^

    You could find a course that allows you to study Psychology and have a year abroad in Japan? I know someone who did something similar but I am unsure what degree they studied.

    That's what I was thinking of doing, but I can't find universities that allow you to go and study in Japan. It's usually in the USA or like, Germany.
