The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Oxford Brookes University is pleased to invite applications for the Sasakawa Masters by Research Studentship in Japanese studies, made possible through the generosity of The Nippon Foundation and the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.
Oxford Brookes University offers a broad range of expertise on Japanese culture and language, but we would be particularly interested in candidates researching aging and care, precarious or marginalised groups, contemporary Buddhism and other religious practice, film, or popular culture. The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences is home to the Europe Japan Research Centre, and we are one of the only Universities in the UK offering a specialisation in the Anthropology of Japan.
The faculty can nominate MPhil/PhD candidates for a studentship of £15,000, for the 2024/25 academic year.
Applications can be made in recurrent years (up to the first three years) for the same amount.
Please note that although you may use your studentship to help towards the cost of your fees, you will be responsible for paying your fees.
International applicants should be aware that they will need to fund their fees at the international rate.
