Course summary

Overview

Our Double Masters in Asian & International Affairs will give you an in-depth knowledge of the politics and economics of Asia, and its position in the wider world. In the programme, you will develop an advanced understanding of societies in Asia, and you will explore how their shifting relations with the US and the EU are currently transforming international politics and the global economy. You will study at two world-leading institutions: Renmin University of China, where you will benefit from its expertise on China and Asia; and King’s College London, where you will benefit from our expertise in international affairs.

Course detail

The EU is the largest economic block in the world and Asia is the fastest-growing region. This course will equip you with the required knowledge about the two regions to work in either of them or in international institutions. You will have the opportunity to study and understand a variety of political, economic and societal topics and to gain specialised knowledge on two topics of your choice and develop advanced research skills through two research dissertations – one for Renmin University of China and one for King’s. Renmin University of China (RUC) is a leading research university focusing on humanities and social sciences. According to the China Ministry of Education, Renmin is ranked first for the study of political science, public administration, economics, law, statistics, business administration and sociology. The School of International Studies (SIS) is one of the earliest institutes to engage in the teaching and research of political science and international affairs in China. Because of this, the School has established strong academic traditions and accumulated invaluable historical experience, making it a leading and influential teaching and research base in the fields of political science and international studies in China. King’s is one of the top universities in the world, as well as one of the most recognised institutions for the study of politics, political economy and international relations. Our academics are internationally renowned and regularly publish in major journals in the fields of politics and political economy, international relations and international political economy and foreign policy and security. Hence our Department is an excellent place to study contemporary international affairs.

Teaching and assessment

We will use a delivery method that will ensure students have a rich, exciting experience from the start. Face to face teaching will be complemented and supported with innovative technology so that students also experience elements of digital learning and assessment. You will have regular contact with our staff, who are world-leading experts in their fields, through lectures, seminars and supervision.

Career prospects

Recent graduates from our department have gone on to prestigious positions, including in UK government departments such as the Foreign Office, Department for International Development, Department for International Trade, and the Treasury; global governance bodies such as the World Bank, United Nations, the World Federation of Exchanges, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the African Development Bank and the International Telecommunication Union; major business media organisations such as Argus and Bloomberg, major financial institutions such as Citi, Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse and HSBC; research and consultancy firms such as McKinsey & Co, Ipsos and the Boston Consulting Group; and lobbying groups within the European Union and beyond. Overall our graduates have embarked on highly successful careers in the public, private and third sector in the United Kingdom, the European continent, as well as in Asia, Africa, and the Americas.
