The Research Centre for Japanese Language and Linguistics is an umbrella for research activities related to Japanese language and linguistics within the University.

Future Developments

A major focus for future developments is to acquire funds for studentships for graduate students in order to be able to continue to attract the best international graduate students. The Faculty of Oriental Studies also hope to be able to fill a post in Japanese medieval history, but this will likely require at least partial external funding.


Funding for graduate students is a significant problem.
