Master's Ambassador Victorine Nillesen
The course 'Advanced Theory of International Relations is extremely useful

My name is Victorine Nillesen and I am currently studying in the Master International Relations at the Faculty of Arts. I do the East Asian Studies track, so my studies take a more regional focus than the other tracks (International Political Economy, International Security, Global Governance, European Integration, and International Relations and International Organization), but there is a lot of overlap in courses and research seminars...
It covers all classic theories but allows for a lot of freedom in being creative and applying theories to current events and conflicts, which I find fascinating.

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 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!
