Vulcanus in Japan is a training programmefor industrial placements of EU citizens studying engineering or science at an EU university.
What is funded
The programme starts in September and ends in August of the following year in order to accommodate the academic year in EU Member States. Students attend a one-week seminar on Japan, a four-month intensive Japanese language course and an eight-month traineeship in a Japanese company.
Applicants, who should be at least in their fourth year of studies (4th year of undergraduate studies or 1st year of Master), are selected on the basis of their academic record, their motivation, their attitude to EU-Japan relations and their ability to adapt to a different culture.
The responsibility for the funding offers published on this website, including the funding description, lies entirely with the publishing institutions. The application is handled uniquely by the employer, who is also fully responsible for the recruitment and selection processes.
