The University of Oxford has a long-standing commitment to the study of Japan at graduate level. Our one-year MSc and two-year taught MPhil courses in Modern Japanese Studies are based at the world-famous Nissan Institute, and have long been popular with students from Japan as well as from around the world. These courses equip all students with a sound grasp of social science and humanities research methods and a good knowledge of contemporary Japanese society and culture. Both courses provide an excellent foundation for further research in a variety of subjects, or for professional careers related to Japan.
This lounge event is an opportunity for all those interested in applying for Japanese Studies at Oxford to come along and talk to past students about their experiences. The alumni will talk about their courses and dissertations, application procedures, and academic and social life at the Nissan Institute and the University of Oxford. Japanese alumni in particular will also talk about why they chose to read Japanese Studies in the UK. This will be an informal session and you are invited to come along with all your questions.
