About Chinese Civilisation and History at University of Wales Trinity Saint David

Course Overview

Learning modern Chinese (Mandarin) is not part of this programme, which means that students have more time to study a greater number of historical modules. However, interested students still have the option to learn Chinese alongside their studies in the Confucius Institute, which offers a range of extracurricular language courses at various levels of proficiency.

Students on this course also have the option to spend the second semester of their second year at a university abroad as part of the University's study abroad schemes.
