The Chinese pathway is intended for beginners or post-beginners with GCSE (or equivalent). If your current level of Mandarin Chinese is beyond this, contact us to check that we can offer a sufficiently advanced level for you.

Note - the pathway below is intended if you wish to study Chinese as a substantial part of your degree, with Chinese featured in your degree title as 'and/with'. However, you can take 30 credits each year in a language, as a third subject, through the Foreign Language Centre. There are a number of languages available, including Chinese (Mandarin). If you complete 60 credits or more you can add 'with proficiency in' the language into your degree title.

The modules we outline here provide examples of what you can expect to learn on this degree course based on recent academic teaching. The precise modules available to you in future years may vary depending on staff availability and research interests, new topics of study, timetabling and student demand.

The Chinese pathway is intended for beginners or post-beginners with GCSE (or equivalent). If your current level of Mandarin Chinese is beyond this, contact us to check that we can offer a sufficiently advanced level for you.

Note - the pathway below is intended if you wish to study Chinese as a substantial part of your degree, with Chinese featured in your degree title as 'and/with'. However, you can take 30 credits each year in a language, as a third subject, through the Foreign Language Centre. There are a number of languages available, including Chinese (Mandarin). If you complete 60 credits or more you can add 'with proficiency in' the language into your degree title.
