No, Sheffield University’s School of East Asian Studies isn’t paying my bandwidth bill, nor are my examiners reading the Daily Mumble (that wig and false nose suit you pretty well actually).
However, the department has played a huge part in giving me the best possible uni experience ever – an experience which will shortly be coming to an end. Thus, it’s only right that I try and give a little back, by encouraging anyone thinking of studying Japanese in the UK to choose Sheffield.
It’s not just me that thinks it’s great by the way. Check out this table, taken from the new UCAS web site www.unistats.co.uk. It details overall satisfaction levels in Asian Studies departments at UK universities.
