Scotland Schools’ Day Event

Thursday 8 December 2016

Appleton Tower, 11 Crichton Street, Edinburgh

The Royal Society for Asian Affairs, together with the University of Edinburgh, would like to invite your school, and in particular your S5 and S6 students, to attend a day of talks about aspects of Asia on Thursday 8 December 2016. The aim is to introduce students to subjects and concepts they may not have previously explored and which will, we hope, inspire them. The conference is open to all in the 16-18 age-group. Those interested in pursuing geography, law, religion, international affairs, social sciences or Asian language pathways may find it particularly relevant.  This is the second annual event in Scotland, building on our well-attended inaugural event last October.

The day is free and lunch is provided.

The day will feature a number of talks on policy, business and culture in Asia, together with language taster sessions in Hindi and Chinese.  The full programme is in development, though will be confirmed very soon.  Travel bursaries are available to low-income schools and students.

If you require further information please contact Shaun McPhee, of the RSAA by email to or by telephone on 07913346611. Details of this, programmes of previous meetings and application forms to attend are available at the RSAA website, and go to “schools”.
