Asian and Middle Eastern Studies Reading List

For prospective students

We advise you to read the Asian and Middle Eastern Studies page thoroughly.

For offer holders

Congratulations on your successful application, we look forward to welcoming you in October, and introducing you to the wider AMES community at King's! A list of preparatory reading is available on the AMES website for each language and we recommend you to cover as much as you can before you begin in October. This will provide excellent background for your study of language, and allow you to identify interests that you can pursue through your writing of essays during term. See the links below for more information.

Those students combining an AMES language with an MML language should also consult the MML reading list.
