The third year of this course is an experience you will never forget. You will spend the year studying at one of our partner universities in Japan. We have relationships with about twenty universities in total, from Hokkaido in the snowy north to Okinawa in the tropical south.
The School of East Asian Studies at Sheffield is well known for its excellent language training. We teach Japanese from scratch, so you don't need previous experience. And you will be taught by native speakers in small groups. This intensive teaching is balanced with modules on Japan's culture, its politics, and its economy.
The course is a bold first step towards a career in East Asia. All over Europe there are great opportunities for graduates who understand the region, its languages and cultures. Our graduates work in government and diplomacy, media, the arts, and international business.

"You aight, duck?" It’s a sort of mantra in Sheffield. An assortment of dubious endearing terms, generously drenched in Henderson’s Relish, served with a side of lowkey whining about The Arctic Monkeys. Before you know it you’ve caught the duck bug, whether you’re relaxing in one of the pubs on West Street or enjoying one of the massive nights out at the Union. Everything is within walking distance, but uphill – eventually you develop Viking legs and stop getting muscle soreness. The Peak District itself is part of town – ride the paternoster to the top of the Arts Tower and see for yourself. Aye duck, it’s reyt good.
