Chinese and Economics

The University of Edinburgh is the only university in Scotland to offer honours programmes in Chinese. Our students have access to study opportunities in China and Taiwan. In the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, our Chinese research was part of the Area Studies submission. Nearly 73 per cent of our research was rated 4*, world-leading, or 3*, internationally excellent. A knowledge of Chinese language and culture is increasingly important as China becomes a bigger global player, economically and politically. China currently has the largest population in the world and the world's second largest economy. Studying Chinese will provide you with an insight into the development of China's rich history, culture and literature. You will learn Mandarin Chinese and learn to read and write Classical and Modern Standard Chinese. You will spend Year 3 in China or Taiwan where you will develop your language skills and experience the countries' rich culture. There are also opportunities for home stays with local families during your year abroad.
