Course summary

China has become one of the world’s largest economies and plays a pivotal role on the world stage. China and the Asia Pacific region are culturally, politically and economically dynamic and vital to our global understanding. You’ll explore the culture, history, politics and economics of the region and its interactions across the Pacific and beyond. You’ll combine this with intensive language study to become proficient in Chinese – a major world language. We teach Chinese from beginner level, but if you already have some knowledge of the subject we can normally accommodate you. You’ll study at one of our partner universities for a year to refine your language skills and gain experience of life in China. Core modules will build your skills in Chinese and you’ll select modules to explore the wider Asia Pacific region, from Japanese literature to religion in East Asia. With the international outlook, expertise and language skills you’ll develop, you’ll be prepared for a global career.
