Newcastle University invites applications from suitably qualified candidates who wish to pursue an MLitt (Masters by Research) or a PhD in Japanese Studies, or another field where the research focus is specifically related to Japan, starting October 2020, with possible funding opportunity sponsored by Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.
Newcastle particularly encourages students with an interest in contemporary Japanese literature, gender and/or popular culture to apply, but welcome applications from candidates with an interest in any area related to Japan. Newcastle is invited by the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation to nominate up to three successful applicants meeting the requirements set out on our website below for their £10,000/year studentship.
N.B. The final decision of award will be made by the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation. Successful application to our programme and nomination does not guarantee award of the studentship. If there are more than three successful and eligible candidates, there will be an internal screening prior to nomination.
Closing date: 5 March 2020. However, note, you MUST hold a conditional or unconditional offer of a place on your chosen degree programme BEFORE you can be nominated.
