Welcome Talk

In this introductory activity, we will tell you about the School of East Asian Studies and give you an overview of our courses, the modules available to you, what you will learn and how we approach our teaching.

Subject Talks

We will break out into four separate rooms to cover each of our single honour courses, East Asian Studies, Chinese Studies, Japanese Studies and Korean Studies.

The first 45 minutes will be led by the Program Lead for that course and with a relevant Language Teaching Specialist.

The last 15 minutes will be led by current students who are currently taking that course who can share their experiences of learning a new language and their favourite modules. 

Chat with academics and current students

This is a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have to our academics, including Program Leads and Language Teaching Specialists.

You will also be able to chat with current students here in the School of East Asian Studies who can share their experience of living here in Sheffield, along with any other questions you may have. 

Employability hub

Drop-in to chat to our student employability interns between 12pm to 2pm on the ground floor foyer area of Jessop West. Find out where your degree could take you and about opportunities such as yearlong placements and part-time jobs to skills development and virtual internships.

Taster Lecture

Experience a lecture by academic staff in the School of East Asian Studies, based on some of their cutting edge research. Our teaching is research-led, which means that our staff’s expertise and research findings feed directly into our curriculum.

* Please note, for any applicants wanting to study a degree 'with Japanese' i.e Korean Studies with Japanese, you do not need to book to attend anything about Japanese Studies. There will be a Language Specialist for Japanese who you can talk to in the refreshment break and ask any questions.
