Robert Beers
Robert Beers - Student Testimonial Asian Studies Leiden University

After completing my BA in Japanese Studies, I was looking for a master's programme that would expand both my knowledge and my horizon. I chose the Asian Studies programme because it offered both, so it was a perfect fit.

Diversity
Whichever track you choose within the programme, there is plenty of flexibility and freedom to pursue your own academic interests. I really enjoyed the diversity of the curriculum. My field of study being sociology, I wrote my thesis about the relationship between international fans and anti-fans in Korean popular music...
Another great asset is the option to do an internship. This is a great way to prepare you for your career.

Intercultural sensitivity
In my current job as an account manager, I can tell that this programme has brought me a lot of benefits. It improved my analytic skills, critical thinking and problem solving ability. Furthermore, my heightened intercultural sensitivity and communication skills help me every day when doing business with contacts from all over the world.
