    I've just been having a look at the modules and was wondering if the list they give here http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/ugstudy/..._year=optional is an exhaustive one? I know that chinese is part of the business school, but do they offer any modules in topics you might find in a more traditional chinese course? I was having a look at Lampeter and the options including Chinese Mythology and Daoism and Confusianism which I would love to have the opportunity to study, especially the latter. Even if not offered from the business school, maybe the philosophy department have modules in Daoism/Confucianism?

    Yep, I recieved an offer and it was my insurance choice. I missed the grades though, and so am reapplying next year which is actually quite fortunate because it gives me more time to really find out what the course involves. Are you starting in September?

    Hey,

    I do a JH course with Contemporary Chinese Studies. Although I cannot speak for the specific modules, there are some modules which are core to the course, so i'll talk about them!

    The topics you mention are covered briefly in lectures (I don't want to sound patronising here, so forgive me if I do), but the whole point is you cover a topic quickly then if you want to explore that in your essay/coursework, you do the research/revision (with given sources plus your own) to gain the knowledge of that area.
    So for example, if you covered the area of Religion in a lecture then you could either adopt a specific perspective in your essay in relation to your interest area or ask the lecturer if you can write your own question

    Hope that helps!
