Korean Studies Sheffield

Hi everyone! I've applied and been offered a place to study Korean at Sheffield this year. I just wondered if anyone else is doing the same course, or maybe a course in the same department. I'd love to make some sort of groupchat so we can all make friends before we get there in September :smile: Maybe there's already a groupchat I'm unaware of but

Wow that's awesome, congratulations to you too! And thank you so much😄 I'm from the UK, and I did my A-levels back in 2021. I did Religious Studies, English Language and Psychology. How about you? Are you currently an A-level student?

Yep, I've been working for a couple years, and I've also been self studying Korean for a year and a half! I originally wasn't even going to go to Uni so it was a last minute decision at the end of January and I rushed to write my personal statement, haha. As for what made me want to learn Korean, I've been into Kdramas and Kpop for over 6 years now, and I started studying to be able to understand the content I'm consuming. It was originally just a hobby but now I'm thinking it could lead to something in the future🙂 Can I ask why you're interested in this course? And best of luck with your exams!!

Oh amazing! Well congratulations especially since you say it was a rushed decision! I have also liked kpop and kdramas for 6 years and wasn't interested in much else so just thought I'd apply. Although Sheffield is my insurance and for my firm uni I'd be doing chinese. I started learning Korean just before gcses but stopped for A levels. And thank you very much! I think I'll need all the luck I can get haha!

Thank you so much!! Oh wow Chinese is super impressive😵 I'd give up before even starting with all the characters you have to learn hahaha. And it's cool that you've already got a little bit of Korean under your belt, as well! I'm curious though how does the Korean with Japanese course work? Is it a mix of learning both languages, and if so is there more focus on one of the languages over the other?🤔

Thank you! I think I've forgotten most of the korean now though hahaha. There's more of a focus on Korean and thats where you spend the year abroad but you also learn some Japanese to a basic conversational level i think (or as they call it Japanese for non-specialists) and theres some Japanese culture and history modules as well. But overall its more focused on Korea.
Hi,

Hey Congrats on your offer for Korean at SOAS! If you have any questions about your course, the year abroad or university life, I'd be happy to answer them! I'm also passionate about languages, in fact I study Arabic and IR at SOAS! What made you want to study Korean specifically and how have you found self-studying both languages?
