Miriam Grinberg

I was set on doing my postgraduate degree on East Asia, and when I found out about the IPEA programme at Warwick, I immediately applied. However, where I had been focused mainly on Japan and China before, IPEA piqued my interest in the region as a whole – including countries I’d never studied before, such as Vietnam and South Korea – not to mention in issues I’d never examined in-depth, such as gender relations and labour movements.

My fellow coursemates were all some of the most interesting people I’ve ever met and talked with, and we have remained close friends; likewise, the tutors were all excellent and provided not only a guiding voice during seminars and office hours, but also a valuable line of support and feedback throughout the academic year. In fact, one of my fondest memories of the programme was when I – along with my coursemates and one of our tutors – went out for dinner and karaoke at the end of the spring term.
