Professional Trips

Professional trips have been a popular component of our Program. They allow our scholars to visit a variety of organizations related to international development and international cooperation in Japan and elsewhere in Asia. They are also expected to help participants with the research related to their master’s thesis. Recent destinations have included Okinawa and Taiwan.

Internships

Internships provide a practical perspective on public policy issues and to complement the formal instruction received in the classroom. We have been running this component of the Program since 2009 in response to scholars’ requests.

Host institutions included the Asia Development Bank Institute (ADBI, Tokyo), the Institute of Advanced Study of the United Nations University (UNU/IAS, Yokohama), Japan HIV Center (Tokyo), Institute of Cultural Affairs (Tokyo) and the Statistical Information Institute for Consulting and Analysis.

Calligraphy

We are well aware that, even if the Japanese language is not needed for the academic activities of the Program, a minimal grasp of it is important for daily life in Japan and, beyond that, for a more thorough understanding of the Japanese way of life and culture and a more meaningful interaction with its people. A basic course in Japanese Language is offered to all scholars during their first months in Tsukuba and, in addition, intermediate lessons are available for those interested in deepening their knowledge of the language.
