Q. Why did you choose Japan to study?

I first got interested in Japan through Aikido in my home town Linz, from the age of 14. I became more interested in Japan when I started to study at the University of Vienna. I gradually became very interested in Japanese culture and economy, felt that if I could become a fluent speaker of Japanese this would be an asset in my future career.

Q. Why did you choose Meiji University?

One of the reasons is the fact that the School of Political Science and Economics is highly regarded by Japan scholars in the University of Vienna. Another reason is the location of Meiji University: Izumi and Surugadai campuses are located at the heart of Tokyo. Also, Izumi International House, where I live in, is very close to Izumi Campus, and just 30 minutes away from Surugadai Campus by train. This is a very convenient dormitory for me.
