About the course

The  Japanese Studies course from The University of Manchester has quickly grown a large undergraduate programme with a small but expanding graduate cluster attached.We offer supervision of postgraduate research projects connected to the broader issues of gender, education, religion, society and history.In particular, we offer specialist supervision on mass culture, subcultural formations and cultural production, contemporary and modern religious organisations and movements, modern medical and educational and cultural history, and gender and women in culture, medicine, reproduction, and society.

Manchester is home to one of the UK's five National Research Libraries - one of the best-resourced academic libraries in the UK and widely recognised as one of the world's greatest research libraries.

Programme Structure

Coursework and assessment

  • Your research will normally be supervised by two members of staff at the University. Your supervisors will most likely be members of the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures, but if your research requires it, we may arrange for supervision by someone outside the School.
  • Supervisory arrangements at Manchester are governed by a Code of Practice which is available on the University's website.
  • Regular meetings will be held with the supervisors, and details of each of the meetings will be recorded.
  • Research panels (consisting of at least three academic staff, including the supervisors) are held once per semester to monitor progress.
