Contemporary Asian Studies is an innovative programme with a broad, interdisciplinary character and a comparative approach to the study of Asia, as a powerhouse of local and global changes. It focuses on all the main regions of Asia, stressing the importance of looking at interconnections both within the vast Asian region and between Asian societies and other parts of the world. The programme offers students the opportunity to design and conduct an independent field research in Asia, leading to a thesis. Students wishing to conduct research on Asia from the Netherlands can also be accommodated.
Contemporary Asian Studies seeks students with an academic Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) in social sciences, humanities or economics. International diplomas are evaluated on the basis of advice from professional diploma evaluators. The minimum level of the diploma should be equivalent to three years of Dutch academic education. Applicants are expected to have a solid basis in the field of Asian studies of at least (an equivalent of) 24 ECTS earned during previous study. Applicants are also expected to have sufficient knowledge of social sciences evidenced by the completion of at least (an equivalent of) 10 ECTS during previous study.
