First year programme - Flexible Combined Honours

Japanese commutersJapanese language can be studied as a minor pathway (30 credits out of the overall 120 taken each year).

The Japanese pathway is for beginners. If your current level of Japanese is beyond this, contact us to check that we can offer a sufficiently advanced level for you.

In year one you take the module:

  • Japanese Beginners FLJ1130 (30 credits) (terms 1 and 2)

The module is delivered by the University's Foreign Language Centre.

If 60 or more credits of Japanese are taken during your degree, your degree title will include the phrase "with Proficiency in Japanese".

It may be possible to add to your Japanese studies by taking related modules from departments across the University, e.g. if there are modules available in Far Eastern history, philosophy and religions. This could then be reflected in the degree title with a suitable term, e.g. "with Japanese Studies" or "with far Eastern Studies".
