Course summary

This programme enables you to study Russian and Chinese in the context of the histories, literatures and societies of two of the world's largest countries, both of whom play an important role in contemporary global politics. Edinburgh is the only university in Scotland to offer undergraduate honours programmes in Chinese, enabling you to learn modern standard Chinese in the context of Chinese history, literature and culture, past and present. Likewise, you'll learn the Russian language while exploring the country’s fascinating political history, its literature, art, music and film. Both subjects will develop your skills in translation, reading, writing and oral communication, including through a Year Abroad in either China or Taiwan and in a Russian-speaking country. Employers recognise the importance of both languages and the benefits of a broad intercultural education. Our graduates are prized for their capability to act as bridges of understanding between Chinese, Russian and British cultures.
