We teach Korean from scratch, so you don't need previous experience. As well as intensive language training, we offer modules that cover the whole of East Asia, putting Korean issues into regional and global context. Towards the end of your course, you'll focus on more advanced and vocational skills in writing, summary, precision translation, debate and oral presentation.
The music course is one of the most flexible and diverse music programmes in the UK. Our curriculum and expertise span seven different areas: performance, composition, musicology, ethnomusicology, music psychology, musical industries, and music technology. We offer an impressive array of modules, with academic and practical study in most music genres, including classical, pop, jazz, folk and world music. You'll develop your skills as a musician and music researcher, and have the freedom to follow your own interests.
As a dual honours student, you'll divide your studies between the Department of Music and the School of East Asian Studies. You'll be required to take a minimum number of credits within both departments each year, but how you choose to divide your modules after this is up to you: split your modules evenly between Korean studies and music or choose to weight your degree in favour of one subject or the other.
In your second year, you will spend time studying in Seoul, South Korea at one of our six partner universities, experiencing the culture first hand and honing your language skills by living alongside native speakers.
Throughout your degree, you'll be studying in an environment dedicated to high-quality teaching, world-leading research, and innovative public engagement. We have cutting-edge facilities, including purpose-built music practice rooms, recording studios and music psychology labs.
Outside of your degree, there are many ways to develop your interests, insights and critical faculties. Opportunities include student-led reading groups, multiple ensembles, active student societies, and our University Concerts series, which hosts over 100 musical events and performances every year.
