§ Mr. Neil Thorne
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) how many British universities have Korean language departments; which they are; and how many(a) first degree and (b) postgraduates they produced in 1988;
(2) how many British universities teach Korean subjects; which universities they are; and what are the subjects they teach.
Several institutions offer oriental language and area studies, although none has a separate Korean department. The School of Oriental and African Studies (University of London) offers Korean as half of a joint first degree and, like the university of Sheffield, offers Korean at post-graduate level and as a subsidiary subject in a first degree. Centrally available figures are not sufficiently disaggregated to show the number of such first or post-graduate degrees awarded.
