Would you like to develop your written and spoken Japanese language skills so you could live or work in another country? Are you interested in learning about Japan’s history, literature and culture? If so a modern languages course in Japan and/ or another European language may be for you. Courses often include time abroad studying at a university, or teaching.

Digging deeper into subject interests can help you in a number of ways:

  • Confirm whether this is (or isn't) something you would be interested in enough to want to study it at university either as the focus of your degree or a minor/elective

  • Give you some inspiration to use when creating your questions and topics for IA's (coursework) and your Extended Essay

  • Provide you with content for your university application writing in the future, enabling you to reflect on the things you've been doing to explore your interests in a way that is academically relevant to the course or institution you are applying for.
