Institute of Asia and Pacific Studies


Teaching programmes

The Institute of Asia and Pacific Studies is excited to be running a multi-site MA Asian and International Studies.

The programme draws upon the teaching expertise of staff members in the UK, China and Malaysia campuses of the University of Nottingham. Students study in the UK campus in the first semester and then choose to study either in the China or the Malaysia campus for the second semester, returning to the UK to complete their dissertation. More details are available in the prospectus.
