Yan Ke graduated from Nanjing University (China) in 2013 with a bachelor's degree in German.

In spring 2018, she earned her master's degree in comparative literature from University College London. While studying literature, Yan has always been concerned with the non-literary factors which shape literary works (political, social, etc.) and issues of class, gender, and ideology have been a constant focus of her studies.
