Overview

This combination of subjects is designed to help you compare China’s rapidly developing economy and growing political influence with the major European political, economic and cultural force of Germany. You’ll also gain an insight into the links between Europe and East Asia.

You’ll study Chinese and German language and culture, and spend a year at a Chinese university. We teach Chinese from scratch, so you don’t need any previous experience. But you do need A Level German.
