Chinese history looks at the development of China over time, as well as improving your Chinese language skills.

Modules you study might include modern Asia, Asian literature, early imperial China, and Chinese politics. Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These could include lectures and seminars,as well as group projects. Depending on your course, you may have the opportunity to spend time studying abroad.
China has long been regarded as a global superpower when it comes to economic, business and political standing. Its reputation as a higher education destination has taken longer to earn, but is rewarded on merit. The country's government has invested in university and higher education over the last few years, with the aim to increase the international student population. This investment has meant that there are many more courses offered in English than there were a few years ago, making China a new and exciting destination for international students.
