Thai Studies at University of Leeds - UCAS

Course summary

Thailand has undergone a radical economic, political and social transformation in recent decades. This degree will allow you to develop Thai language skills to an advanced level while discovering the cultural, political and historical context of this unique country.  Optional modules give you the chance to explore the topics that interest you – covering more elements of Thai culture or exploring other topics across East Asia as a whole. One of the strengths of East Asian Studies at Leeds is that we have expertise which spans the many diverse aspects of this fascinating region, which encompasses Northeast and Southeast Asia.  You’ll spend your second year studying in Thailand and have many opportunities to immerse yourself in rich and fascinating culture. At the same time, you’ll be able to visit other Southeast Asian countries close by, such as China, Burma, Laos and Cambodia.  We teach Thai from beginners’ level, but if you already have some knowledge we can normally accommodate you.
