The LSE-PKU Summer School offers courses from across the social sciences, all with reference and relevance to China and Asia today. Participants  select one intensive course to study for the two-week programme.            

Each course is delivered by one or more leading academics from LSE and/ or PKU, supported by Teaching Assistants who are usually PhD students from one of the partner institutions.            

Each course normally comprises 48 contact hours over two weeks, usually arranged as 36 hours of lectures and 12 hours of classes or seminars. The course is assessed through mid-term assessments and final examination, allowing the award of a graded  transcript to participants who successfully complete the programme.            

A full list of the courses available in 2017 will be confirmed shortly, however the list of course available during the LSE-PKU Summer School 2016 included:
