Be prepared for the demands of today’s globalized world and obtain cutting edge expertise in Asian Studies!
Lund University offers a unique programme in Asian Studies. The programme is interdisciplinary and aims to provide you with an advanced knowledge on contemporary issues in Asia together with the analytical and methodological skills to assess social, economic and political developments in the region. The programme permits you to specialise based on your regional, thematic, and disciplinary focus and to critically examine and discuss issues within the field of East and South-East Asia and South Asia.
The programme consists of obligatory courses on economic and political developments in Asia, as well as on international affairs and socio-cultural issues. A number of special courses are offered providing in-depth knowledge on issues such as gender, religion and ethnicity, development, human rights and the environment. You will have the possibility to conduct fieldwork in Asia at leading universities and institutes in the region.
Lund University is an international environment with students, researchers and professors from different countries. Something that is exceptional is the informal relation between students and professors. Students are encouraged to think creatively and critical thinking is expected.
This Master’s programme is unique in Europe, and provides an excellent foundation for postgraduate studies, teaching, and research, as well as for work in government agencies, international services, private firms and NGOs.
The application round for international students is now closed.
If you are an EU/EEA citizen (or if you already have a residence permit in Sweden or the EU/EEA) it is possible for you to apply for our programmes and courses in the "Swedish student" application rounds (15 March-15 April for studies commencing in autumn).
You apply at the national application website for Swedish students www.antagning.se. Once you have found the programme there, start by creating an account at the international student application website www.universityadmissions.se and follow the same steps as when you apply in the international application round. Be aware that the admission results are announced very close to the start of the academic semester.
Non-EU/EEA citizens will generally not be able to apply in the later application rounds, as they will not be able to get their residence permits in time for the start of the semester.
