Consultation on The Future of Chinese Studies – A Call for Views

26 March 2014

BACS-LogoThe British Association of Chinese Studies (BACS), which represents the interests of those in the academic community engaged in China related teaching and research (language, history, social science etc.), is initiating a consultation exercise which seeks to collect stakeholder views (business, education, policy, employers) about the current and future role of Chinese Studies in the UK.

A broad section of views from interested parties will provide the basis for a working group, which will then organise a 'Chinese Studies Day' to take place later this year. 

If you are interested in helping us develop a successful and fit for purpose Chinese Studies offering in the UK, visit our survey page on  It will only take 5 minutes to complete.

The deadline for views is Monday 7 April 2014.
