    I'm going to be studying Japanese at University in September and am wondering which University I should attend. I have little previous knowledge of Japanese so I would like, if at all possible; a comparison between them. Does anyone know what its like to study at these institutions... what are the drop out rates for 1st years on the course, for example I've heard SOAS and Sheffield have a high amount of drop outs which partly influenced me in not applying as I want the course to be of a realistic level to ensure I pass. As I have not studied it in an academic setting before I have no clue what to expect so I could find myself finding it great at places or very difficult; so some insight from people who have studied there for example; would help me a lot! I guess my main question is, how many people pass the course who started, how difficult/realistic is the course and whats the dropout rate!

    Any information regarding how the courses progress throughout the degree and success rates, dropout rates etc. would be greatly appriciated!!!!

    Thank you! :

    Have a look on whatuni.com they have all the stats like that. They also have reviews for each course at each uni and you can also compare courses at different universities. It can take you all the way through your application even from this searching stage.
    I honestly don't know the information that you're looking for but you might find it on there
