Hi guys…hope all is well!
In the last week I have been offered a place to study an MSC in International Politics for this academic year 08/09. In addition, I am also in the process of applying for the LSE-PKU Double MSC programme.
I would really like to know if anyone else is in the same situation as myself i.e. have you been offered a place to study this MSC between PKU-LSE? Are there any students on this forum who are taking this MSC currently or have taken it in the past? I can’t seem to find any information regarding this course on the Student Room.
From the research which I have carried out to date, I am led to believe that politics is perhaps one of the weaker areas at SOAS, is this so?
I primarily want my focus to be on Chinese politics and how it affects the Asia-Pacific region and further a field in the UK/EU etc. Even though SOAS, as its name testifies, is a specialist in African and Asian studies, it seems to be the case that LSE offers more breadth and detail in relation to China (check out their modules on offer).
Any suggestions are testimonies as to the quality of these courses at SOAS/LSE would be greatly appreciated!!
