Information for offer holders on single and joint honours degree programmes involving Chinese. 欢迎 / 歡迎

Welcome from Professor Jeremy Robbins, Head of School

Thank you for your interest in the subject area of Chinese. Whichever programme you hold an offer for, congratulations on receiving it! I’m delighted that you are interested in studying with us, and we very much hope that you will join our community.

The School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC) offers one of the widest range of languages of any UK university. Our students and graduates tell us that they value the School’s friendliness, the connections they have made here, and the in-depth guidance of our staff, who are experts in their field and passionate about what they do.

We specialise in teaching students with varying amounts of language experience so, whatever your existing level, you will be in good hands. As well as the School’s professional Student Support Office, Chinese Studies has its own Peer Support Group, and being part of our Asian Studies department means getting to know students and staff in Japanese and Korean too. 

Ordinarily, we’d be welcoming you to our building in the heart of the University of Edinburgh’s Central Area, just across George Square from the Main Library where collections include the Chinese and East Asian Studies Collection of 50,000 print and digital resources. As we can’t do that just now, we’ve provided as much information as we can here to help you on your way to choosing the right university for you.

Good luck, and we hope to see you in September.

Our academic staff explain what it will be like to study Chinese at Edinburgh

The programme at Edinburgh is unique in its structure because it allows you to not only study Chinese language with your peers, but also delve into China’s history, literature and film under the guidance of renowned lecturers. One of my favourite aspects of studying at Edinburgh is being able to connect with other students studying Chinese from across all four years; they are always willing and enthusiastic mentors.
