The Specialist Schools and Academies Trust, in partnership with Cambridge International Examinations, is organising a student conference on 12 March 2010 at the influential Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House, offering students a great opportunity to gain access to one of the world's renowned international institutions and learn more about China.
Three China experts will present papers on Chinese history, China and the city and the Chinese economy written especially for secondary school students. These papers will correspond to topics on the Cambridge Pre-U Mandarin Chinese syllabus and provide an ideal starting point for students of Pre-U. Attendees will also have the opportunity to submit questions to a panel of experts. These experts will include:
Kerry Brown - Senior Fellow on the Asia Programme at the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House
Rana Mitter - Professor of the History and Politics of Modern China at the University of Oxford and author of Modern China: A Very Short Introduction
