I graduated with a Master of Philosophy from the Nissan Institute in 2013. The focus of my research is the role of the Internet and new ICTs in the political debate, taking Japan as a case of study.

My experience has been extremely positive. The teachers are fantastic, the courses interesting, varied and well structured, the staff is helpful and welcoming... the building itself is a beautiful place!

I am now in Washington, D.C. working as a Communications Associate with Search for Common Ground, an international NGO in the field of conflict resolution, with offices in more than 30 countries.

Looking back at my two years at Oxford, I cannot overstate the importance that they had on my personal, academic and professional growth. If you are considering coming here, well, you're making a very good choice!
