Migration and Diaspora Studies and Intensive Language (Japanese) at SOAS University of London aims at supporting students’ ability to tackle their disciplinary interests by engaging with written texts and in oral communication in Japanese.
Your chosen discipline is combined with intensive Japanese language over two years (including a period in Japan), making this programme unique in Europe.
Students’ proficiency levels will be assessed through a placement test during registration week (specific dates will be provided to the applicants).
Students taking MA Japanese Studies as their discipline cannot choose additional Japanese language modules from the Languages list. Please select your discipline modules from the other categories. Please also note that Special Chinese and Basic Korean can only be taken with the approval of the language teachers and MA convenor.
Students bear the costs of travel to and from Japan, as well as all living expenses (including accommodation) during the period of their stay.
