Course content

This programme provides students with exceptional opportunities for advanced study of one of the world’s most diverse and important regions, with an opportunity to pick and choose to intensively study from a variety of South East Asian language options. Language module options include: Burmese, Indonesian, Thai and Vietnamese.

Students on the programme come from a wide range of backgrounds. Some come into the programme having acquired an interest in South East Asia during their undergraduate career or as a result of travelling in the region.

The programme also attracts mature students: some take the MA as a partial preparation for employment in the region; others, having lived in South East Asia for a number of years, seek to place their experience and impressions into a more structured, analytical framework.

Knowledge of a South East Asian language is not a pre-requisite for admission to this programme.
