Description

Study international issues in East Asia! The course provides a historical background to international relations in East Asia. It focuses on contemporary issues such as China's political and economic rise and the development on the Korean peninsula.

The course provides students with basic knowledge of key issues of East Asia's international relations and introduces the key concepts required to understand these relations. It deals with the relations between Japan, the Korean peninsula, China, and also the US, which is an actor in the region through its military presence and alliances The course addresses key concepts that are used in the study of international relations and also considers the theoretical contexts from which the concepts are derived. The key concepts are then used to understand and explain the region's geopolitical development from the end of the Pacific War in World War II to the present. The course places special emphasis on the role of history in the present-day relations of the region. China's political and economic rise and its influence on neighbouring countries are addressed in the course, as is the role of the US and its system of regional alliances in defining and affecting the region.

International student?

Make your application in the First Admission Round at universityadmissions.se.

Application period October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.
