Highlighted content

Founded in 1988, the Centre for Asian Studies (CSAS) is the central academic unit at the University of Edinburgh and indeed for much of Scotland dedicated to the study of South Asia. It brings together a group of highly reputable academic colleagues from across the University’s subjects and schools, including Social Anthropology; Art; Engineering; Geography; History; Literatures, Languages and Cultures; Law; Politics and International Relations; Religious Studies; Sociology; and the Vet School to provide a vibrant core of academics that have a keen interest and expertise on South Asia.

We offer a range of courses at the undergraduate and post graduate level. The CSAS community at the University of Edinburgh is a vibrant collective of staff and students with regular seminars, workshops and student-led events.
