Destinations of Diplomates

Diplomates -- former students of the Language Centre's Diploma in Communicative Japanese programme -- have come from a wide spectrum of subject disciplines. On completing the one-year full-time course, the majority have been successful in either obtaining employment or continuing their academic studies using Japanese source materials. Some of the career destinations are journalism, translation, consultancy, government posts, theatre, legal work, teaching and engineering.

We present here reports from six Diplomates, with grateful thanks to them for the time and effort taken in writing them.
