Anna Schrade, MSc in Modern Japanese Studies, 2009-2010

Seeing my dream come true, I’m back in Japan, working as Assistant Professor at the University of Kobe, Japan. While I devote most of my time to my own research, I also teach undergraduate classes.

After completing my MSc in Modern Japanese Studies I stayed on for a DPhil in History under the supervision of Dr Sho Konishi from the Nissan Institute, with financial support from Pembroke College. Between 2011 and 2013, I was Monbukagakusho scholar at the University of Tokyo, and did extensive field research on Japan’s anti-pollution movements in the 1950s and 1960s. Back in Oxford, I worked as a tutor in History, teaching Modern Japanese History to Oxford undergraduate students in HT 2013. As I love teaching, I also started my own company, LEOX summer school OXFORD.

Adrian Haight, MSc in Modern Japanese Studies, 2011-2012

I went from the MSc in Modern Japanese Studies to the Said Business School MBA as one of the first 1+1 students.  After working for Johnson & Johnson as a Product Manager Intern, Adrian is now an International Associate at a large Canadian financial institution.  "I found my time at the Nissan Institute hugely enjoyable.  The Professors were engaging, the course material was diverse and challenging, and the MSc Program was valuable to my personal and career development".
