The programme creates tailor-made study packages at our partner universities across Asia and the Middle East, and values the need to fine-tune your practical skills through internships included in the program in private companies, state organisations and NGOs. The tuition fee for fee-paying students on this programme is 3, euros per year.
Study Asian and Middle Eastern Studies at University of Cambridge - Which?
As you progress through the years, you also learn about aspects of the culture and history of your chosen region, and in third year go on a year abroad. I really like the options to study not only China, but also the rest of East Asia; in first year we took a module on an overview of Chinese, Japanese and Korean history, and in second year have the option to take an East Asian cinema paper. This means that along with gaining a deep knowledge of China, I can also learn about it in the context of its standing in East Asia and the rest of the world. The course is quite broad; although in first year there is no choice of paper due to the focus on learning the language, this year I am taking modules in Modern and Classical Chinese as well as history and a borrowed paper from linguistics. Personally I have really enjoyed the fact that through a language course I can still study other humanities subjects such as these. Language work takes up a large part of my time for obvious reasons. This is a mixture of depending on which year you are in translation, writing essays, preparing for speaking classes or translating classical Chinese texts.
