About

The South Asian Studies programme at The University of Edinburgh  is the central academic unit in Scotland dedicated to the study of South Asia.

Overview

With 25 full-time associated staff in Edinburgh, honorary fellows, and more staff affiliated across Scotland and northern Britain, the Centre is also one of the four leading Centres for South Asian Studies in the UK.

We host a vibrant series of seminars, a cohort of PhD scholars and a range of researchers meaning that there is a culture of academic discussion and exchange.

The South Asian Studies programme at The University of Edinburgh brings together South Asian expertise from across the University, to create a lively environment supporting the interdisciplinary study of the subcontinent as a whole.
