Richard Banfield, MSc in Modern Japanese Studies, 2012-2013
I had a fantastic time doing the MSc in Modern Japanese studies at the Nissan Institute. Both the faculty and our class have been made of absolutely impressive individuals making discussions in the class rooms a great learning experience. I took the Anthropology and Economics modules and enjoyed both very much.
Besides the course, Oxford offers unparalleled curricular activities. There are societies for pretty much everything and everyone. I myself joined several orchestras and chamber music groups as well as the rowing club of my college. Not to forget countless formal dinners in beautiful halls and college balls!
Since completing the MSc in Modern Japanese Studies I have returned to work with McKinsey where I consult clients across Europe and Asia, mostly in the Automotive and Consumer industries
