Course summary

GSCE Japanese will extend your knowledge of the Japanese language and culture. You must have already completed the Certificate in Japanese, which can be taken during your first year at Barton Peveril. After studying GCSE Japanese you will have a greater ability to use and understand Japanese, learning 200 Kanji, and an impressive qualification that will help you stand out to employers and Universities.

GCSE Japanese can lead to studying Japanese at University, similarly to past students who have gone on to do a Single or Joint Honours Degree in Japanese after successfully completing the course.
