Should I study Chinese at university?
I'm big into languages and currently study 5, 2 of which I self study: Korean and Chinese and I'm highly interested in both but Korean is definitely easier, I'm looking into options for studying Chinese at uni but I cant find much info about it.

Yeah I've been back and forth on the idea I know it will consist of much more work than other language degrees which doesn't bother me but I don't know how much opportunity there is with Chinese and Edinburgh is the only uni in Scotland which offers a BA in Chinese studies and if i don't get in would it be worth it to apply to universities in England?

Hi there,

You can study Mandarin Chinese at the University of Birmingham with native speakers alongside one or two other Modern Languages. At Birmingham, you learn the culture through the medium of the target language, so it's a really innovative way of working. We also offer competitive contact hours of 8 hours per week for the first half of your studies in Birmingham in small groups for your main Chinese language module. Plus, you can spend your entire Year Abroad studying in China, as long as you go on a vacation course in your other target country for a few weeks afterwards.

If you would like me to send you over a course sheet with a year-by-year breakdown of what you learn in Chinese, feel free to email me via [email protected].

Best Wishes,
Danielle
