BA/BSc (H), Full-time With Time Abroad
, Duration: 4 Years
This is a combined honours course, where you study English Language and Linguistics alongside Japanese Studies. English Language and Linguistics will enable you to explore how language works as a complex system and why English has become the global language of communication. You will examine the ways in which the language, and other forms of meaning, are structured and used for different purposes in a range of contexts â local, national and global. Oxford is the ideal city in which to study English Language and Linguistics, with a vibrant literary community, and cultural and literary events taking place throughout the year. It is also a very international city â with students and residents from a wide range of backgrounds. Japan is a fascinating, complex and vibrant country with the third largest economy in the world. Think sushi, sumo, Sony, Shinto, Toyota, karaoke, kabuki, karate and manga. If you would like to explore Japanese society and language, our Japanese Studies course is for you. The course combines language modules with the study of specific aspects of society and culture, taught by specialists in the field.
In the English Language and Linguistics element of the course, what you study includes: In Year 1 you will take core introductory modules which give you a thorough grounding in key elements of language, sociolinguistics and communication.

In the Japanese Studies element of the course, what you study includes: Year 1 covers the Japanese language from beginnersâ, GCSE or post-GCSE level as well as the compulsory module Introduction to Japanese Society and Culture. Year 2 provides further language practice combined with modules that allow more detailed study of the arts, culture and society of Japan. Year 3 is spent studying at a Japanese university as an exchange student. Year 4 will build on your fluency and range of expressions acquired while abroad.

Oxford Brookes was amazing! The campus was beautiful, really modern and clean, and the facilities there were great. Our course had a good mix of practical applied work and theoretical stuff in lectures, and it really gave me a deep understanding that I could use after my degree. Speaking of, the Careers service was also top notch, and they had loads of stuff going on that helped me walk straight into graduate employment. The student support services were also really comprehensive, with lots of financial and accommodation advice which helped ease my mind a lot.
