What language(s) do you want to study: Japanese
Universities you're applying to: Oxford, Durham, Edinburgh, Manchester and SOAS
A level subjects: Japanese, RS & history
GCSE grades: 3As, 7A*s
Other information: I want to study Japanese because I really love the culture (particularly the arts such calligraphy, tea ceremony, architecture, etc) but I also love other languages. I really want to pick up German again which I did for GCSE and for half of year 12 and I plan to also start learning French as I love the country.

In theory you can learn a language at uni without doing it as part of your degree (most big unis will have a language centre that offer evening courses or self-study courses), but in practice it's difficult - you have to be very driven and disciplined.

What language(s) do you want to study: Russian and Polish/Czech
Universities you're applying to: Sheffield, Leeds, Edinburgh, Bristol, QMUL
A level subjects: English Literature, English Language, French
GCSE grades: 2A*, 4A, 3B, 1C.
Other information: I've been learning Russian in my own time but I'll be taking it ab initio - if I am successful in applying to Sheffield then I'll be doing Russian and Polish for sure. I'm really interested in international relations too, so I might try and get a module in on that side of things, but I'm not too bothered if not. I also really like the University of Nottingham but I want to move away from home, so I didn't apply there. It's so nice though ^-^

Thank yoou!
So I applied on 11th October and if I get Cambridge (p unlikely haha) I'll probably firm it - if not, I think Warwick (again, if I get it) and Nottingham would be my top 2!
What about you?

Hi guys! Good luck to everyone applying!

What language(s) do you want to study: Chinese (ab initio) and French
Universities you're applying to: Edinburgh, Leeds, Warwick, SOAS and Reading
A level subjects: French, Maths, Chemistry and AS Economics
GCSE grades: 7, 6, 5, 6A, 1B
Other information: I'm so scared that I'll be the only total beginner in Chinese! I want to study it because I was born in Hong Kong and I lived there until I was 7 so I've always had an interest in Chinese history and culture. I found it a bit of a shame that I wasn't able to learn more about it. Also it's something that is COMPLETELY different from the languages that are available to us at school so I would like to challenge myself with it.
