Workload/timetable while doing MA Japanese Studies

Hello, I have recently got an offer for my MA Japanese Studies applications (1year/full time programme) And I have decided to accept it. I live now in Brighton, where I have done my BA in History of Art, and will be moving back to London soon. I wanted to start applying for jobs related to my degree soon (museums, galleries and similar but those tend to be full time jobs, with only so much flexibility) but I am not certain if I find time for full time in terms of the campus lectures/seminars ( I have worked full time during my BA, so I am not too worried about managing my workload) On my BA i had mostly all seminars and lectures packed into two days, and those were my „uni days” where after lectures i would go to library to study/do my readings etc, and could still work full time over the next 5 days. I also have multiple years of experience as a bartender, so I am not too worried about finding part-time job if needed (but of course, that doesn’t really support me in my career, and I only would like to do that if I can’t find a job withing my career choice) Did you find your timetable to be as managable, or were you rather visiting campus multiple times a week?

Hi! Congrats on accepting your masters program. I am in my final year of BA International Relations and Japanese so will try my best to answer your question! How spread out your timetable is, is very dependent on what courses you decide to take. Its quite tricky to predict what days you will be on campus until a preliminary timetable is released. When choosing your modules you will see what term they are taught in, how many contact hours they are and some have teaching days listed. In my final year I was on campus two days in term 2 but 4 days in term 1 so it can really change! You will definitely be able to work but may need to wait to see how your studies would fit with a inflexible full time role. Hope this helps!
