About the programme
The pedagogical approach of the China and International Relations programme of Aalborg University is based on central features of AAU’s problem-based approach to innovation and learning, i.e. problem-orientation, research-based teaching, an interdisciplinary approach, and student project work. Though problem-based learning is the point of departure for the programme at both universities, the actual implementation will be influenced by the different educational cultures in China and Denmark. This enables the students to become familiar with different educational cultures and provides a unique environment for engaging in cross-cultural learning processes.
Job and Career
China and International Relations allows students to select China as an area of specialisation in their future careers. For some students it may lead to PhD studies and a career in teaching and research, while for many others it will open the door to a professional career in a number of areas in which China is a central component, such as business and industry, international trade, government and international service, NGOs or other types of organisations.
