MPhil/PhD studentship in Japanese Studies, Oxford Brookes University

The Department of Social Sciences, Oxford Brookes University is pleased to invite applications for the Sasakawa Postgraduate Studentship in Japanese studies, made possible through the generosity of The Nippon Foundation and the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.

The department can nominate up to three MPhil/PhD students for studentships of £10,000. This studentship is initially for one year only, but may be renewable subject to satisfactory progress in subsequent years, up to a maximum of four years, beginning in September of the2014/15 academic year. Please note, however, that you will be required to reapply for the studentship each year, and that the GBSF will consider these applications on their merits. The GBSF cannot make a recurrent four year commitment to any one PhD candidate from year one.

For the successful candidates the Faculty will contribute £1,000 per year towards the student’s fees for up to four years, in addition to the Sasakawa studentship. All successful candidates will be required to pay the remainder of their fees each year and International applicants should be aware that they will need to fund the remaining fees at the International rate for each year of the award.
