The training program for EU / COSME students Vulcanus in Japan was launched on 10 January and will start in September and end in August next year. As part of the program, students will participate in a seminar about Japan, followed by an intensive Japanese course both free, and then an internship in a Japanese company.

This programme is financed by the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation and the Japanese host company. The EU / COSME students are awarded a grant (Yen 1.900.000) to cover the cost of travel to and from Japan and living expenses in Japan. There is no charge for the language course and seminar, and accommodation is provided free of charge during the course and seminar and the company traineeship.

A student eligible for a grant must be:
- citizen of an EU Member-State or a COSME partnering country.
- a student of engineering or science at an EU / COSME university, enrolled –at the moment of application– in between the 4th official year of university studies (3 undergraduate + 1) and the penultimate year of PhD.
- able to provide a certificate of enrollment at the university valid until at least 3 months prior to the starting of the programme (please note that you cannot complete your cycle of studies before June)
