Course summary

One of the world’s earliest civilisations, China is once again a major economic and political global power - one whose scale makes an understanding of regional and cultural differences essential. 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. At Edinburgh, we specialise in teaching students with little or no prior knowledge of Chinese. On this programme, you will learn to read, write and speak modern standard Chinese to an advanced level. Our programme is unique because, as well as learning to read both simplified - and traditional - form characters, you will also learn to read classical Chinese. As you progress through the programme, you will learn Chinese-English and English-Chinese translation skills. In addition to the Chinese language, you will have the opportunity to learn about China's modern and pre-modern history, its politics and society and culture, including specialist courses on its literature and film, with the aim of becoming an expert on China by the end of your four years. You will spend Year 3 at a university in China or Taiwan.
