In the United Kingdom few truly understand China. In the last 30 years, the world's most populous country has seen its economy rise faster than any other in history. It has been the world's biggest exporter since 2009 and is currently the second largest economy. Under the leadership of President Xi Jinping, ambitious national and international projects such as the vast railway expansion programme and the Belt and Road Initiative continue to prove China's significance on the world stage. Building stronger relations with China is one of the UK's top priorities, however, these can only be established through informed decision-making and diplomacy.


The China Futures Society was founded in September 2019 at the University of Edinburgh. Since then, the Society has aimed to bring students focused on China-related careers together, providing a network of opportunities. We work to develop a better understanding of China whilst giving students a place to share ideas and opinions. Conferences, talks on all subjects from culutre to economy, and useful connections are available to all members.
