    I became fascinated with East Asia

    Whilst studying for my Bachelor's degree in History, I became intrigued by the Minor in Modern Japan. It started with an introduction to Non-Western Studies. The further we got into the Minor, the more we learnt about East Asia and Japan and the more these took centre stage. Japan's international relations with the West, the ASEAN+3 and the rest of the world was a subject I particularly wanted to delve into.

    I became fascinated with East Asia and curious about the other disciplines that study this region. The Master's track in East Asian Studies was exactly what I was looking for.

    In this interdisciplinary track, you approach complex international issues from cultural, legal, political and economic perspectives. The track thus provides the deeper meaning and intellectual challenge that I need. In addition, the students and lecturers get on well and go out for a drink every now and again. This is not just fun but is also a good occasion to exchange ideas and knowledge. The lecturers have a large network, which offers many opportunities. Thanks to these connections, I am going to study at the Osaka University of Japan for four months. But the track also offers opportunities for study in China, Korea, even Mongolia!
