Module Information

Advice on your Module Selection

Some modules run in both 30-credit and 15-credit versions. These have identical content and teaching hours, but different workload and assessment - students may not take both the 30-credit and 15-credit versions of the same module.

The modules in question are:

  • EAS6143 and EAS680 State and Economy in Contemporary China/Political Economy of China
  • EAS6149 and EAS6158 Media and Public Communication in Japan
  • EAS6226 and EAS6227 Business and the Economy of Japan
  • EAS6347 and EAS6447 Business and Management in Contemporary China
  • EAS6353 and EAS6453 Contemporary Chinese Society and Media, State and Society in China

Students with no prior knowledge of a language (Chinese/Japanese/Korean) may register for the ab initio language modules; any student who has studied a language before should consult the language teaching staff to ensure that they are placed in the correct level.

Please be aware, not all modules are available to all students: consult your degree regulations for information on the options open within your degree programme. You can do this using the Programme Regulations Finder
