The Yenching Academy of Peking University offers a great opportunity to Oxford students and graduates: a two-year interdisciplinary Master’s Programme in China Studies at the top university in China. The first year of the programme is fully funded, including one round-trip airfare, tuition, housing, and living expenses. Students who maintain good academic standing and choose to remain in Beijing for the second year are also eligible to apply for another year of full funding. As well as a rigorous education across a range of disciplines, Yenching Scholars experience a series of lectures from visiting professors, field studies including historical sites and current industries, and discussion of cultural, political and societal trends in China, as well as the opportunity to undertake internships and the chance to learn Mandarin.
The Yenching Academy annually enrols approximately 120 new students from both the Chinese Mainland and abroad, to study, live, and learn together. International students comprise roughly 80% of the student body.
The application deadline for the 2020 cohort is 6 December 2019 – so if you’re interested in this opportunity, start your application soon!
