    Hi everyone!

    I am currently doing A-Level English literature, Englsih language and History.

    Despite this, I have a desire to study Korean in university.

    I do not know any Korean so would I still be able to apply for a course? Would the course be able to support someone who doesn't know anything about the language?

    I don't know if it's a risk I should take, since I am doing well in my A-Levels. Should I just continue in university with subjects I am familiar with and perhaps enjoy less or Korean which I am passionate to do but don't even know the basics about?

    Any advice would be great. Thank you.

    By your name I can tell you like BTS. Although you may like Korean( I do too and have been studying it for a while by myself). It's best that you keep it as a hobby and teach it yourself over time and pursue a career with your current a-levels. It doesn't bring many good job prospects as Korea is fairly small and is not a "worldwide language". I once did also want to study it at university, but then I realised I can't really get a job with korean
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
