For master's students in Norway, we organise an annual master's course and award prizes for best master's thesis on Asia.
Competition for best Master's thesis
We organise an annual competition for Master's students who have written their thesis on an Asia related subject. The prize for the best thesis is NOK 5000,-
The thesis must be evaluated at a Norwegian institution sometime in the 12 months prior to the competition. It must also be written within the humanities or social sciences, broadly defined.
Asianettverket Annual MA Course
The Norwegian Network for Asian Studies hosts a free annual 2-day MA course for students writing writing their thesis about an Asia-related topic.
Talented course leaders present their experiences from fieldwork and thesis writing and course participants are given the opportunity to present and and receive feedback on their works in progress.
With course participants from institutions across the country and thesis projects with great academic and regional variety, this course is a great opportunity to participate in valuable discussions with other master's students and gain insights for your own project work.
Information on the course of 2020 will be posted here and in our weekly newsletter.
