The second cohort of students on the LSE-Peking University (PKU) Double MSc in International Affairs began their studies in Beijing, China, this week.
The LSE-PKU University Double Masters in International Affairs is a two year programme organised jointly by LSE and Peking University. The first year is spent at the School of International Studies at Peking University, studying the international relations of China and the Asia Pacific region. The second year is spent at LSE, studying the theory and history of global international relations. Students who successfully complete the programme graduate with two masters degrees, one from each institution.
The programme began in 2006, with the first cohort of students due to start their second year of the double degree at LSE this October.
This year's cohort of students includes 22 students from China, Italy, Spain, USA, Germany, Thailand, Mexico, Peru, Korea and Iceland. They will start their second year at LSE's Cold War Studies Centre in October 2008.
All courses in London and core courses in Beijing are taught in English, with students having the opportunity to choose optional courses in either English or Chinese.
