University of Cambridge Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies

Full time October Research Only, Other 11 months

About the course

Our MPhil programme in Chinese Studies is offered as a one-year programme which aims to give graduate students an opportunity to develop their analytical, research and writing skills in preparation for further academic research or entry to professions requiring such skills. It is designed for highly motivated future researchers who have a substantial undergraduate background in Chinese studies or related fields but need more exposure to topic-specific or discipline-based analytical frameworks and more intensive training in primary source language(s) and research skills.

This MPhil programme is taken by dissertation only. This entails working closely with one supervisor throughout the year on a thesis of not more than 25,000 words to be submitted in mid-August.
