Japanese Exchange

The Department of Cultures and Languages has established partner agreements with Tokyo-based Universities in Japan.


  • Applicants are expected to have passed Japanese 2.
  • Additional language classes (optional) are open to exchange students, e.g. Introductory Japanese, Intermediary Japanese and Advance Japanese. Students will be advised to take such classes based on the result of their initial placement test, taken at the beginning of the semester.

Please note you must make satisfactory progress during Years 1 and 2 of your degree to be eligible for a year abroad. Additionally, the non-UK partner institution may set its own entrance criteria, including, but not limited to, academic criteria, language requirements and visa requirements. In instances where a student does not meet the eligibility criteria for an approved year abroad, their registration may be transferred to the corresponding BA programme pathway without the ‘with International Experience’ designation.
