Program content

You will have at least 3-4 hours of language classes each week in each of your chosen languages. Tuition is mainly in small groups and there are few formal lectures. Assessment involves coursework and written and oral examinations. You will also complete a dissertation as part of your degree. Your third year will be a year abroad and involve a placement at a top-ranked university in China.

By studying Chinese you will follow language modules that will build over the years to provide both breadth and depth of understanding geared towards helping students to develop linguistic, analytical and communication skills by both working with others and individually.

For the Chinese component of your degree, in Year 1 you will take the two compulsory modules Chinese for Beginners 1 and 2. In Year 2, you will take the compulsory module Chinese Language Skills. Year 3 will be spent abroad. At least one semester will be spent studying at one of our partner universities in China.
