    Hey, I'm going to send my UCAS application by the end of this week!

    How long did it take for everyone here to receive an offer?

    Do you have any advice for applying in terms of your personal statement r anything else would be great help!

    Hey I think It was about 3 to 4 weeks until we got a reply. And when your writing your statement just try to express why you love the language and talk about how you want to use japanese in the future.

    hey, What Djevy said is good advice, aslong as you convey the interest you have in the language and the culture, also it is alot of work so mention something that lets them know that you are prepared for the challenge ( not gonna lie in terms of work we get more than other courses but thats due mostly to kanji and constant new vocab )

    well so far we have gone through such alot in a short space and would take too long to say what we have done, we have 8 contact hours plus one "optional" kanji class a week, every grammar class (three a week) we learn a new grammar point and the other classes are speaking and listening practice and then there is alot of studying outside of class, you have the option to take a placement test and if you have prior knowledge they will have you in another group to begin with, but honestly they prefer ab initio learners and everything is taught from scratch so i would not worry too much about learning prior ( just aslong as you know the hirigana and katakana you will be fine)

    Hi I'm trying to find out some important things about the year abroad for Japanese Studies (at university of Sheffield). Does anyone know how much you pay that year, because I've heard it's a reduced fee. When you are over there, do you get help with living costs etc ?. I just can't find much information on this. Any help would be really appreciated.

    Hey,
    Have just had my first year abroad meeting a few days ago , we were told that you do not have to physically have the money in your account, however you do need to have proof of access to the funds, this is through SFE, perhaps family, Savings etc...
