Experience ancient traditions fused with modern life

With a highly skilled and educated workforce, Japan has a reputation as a nation of quality, efficiency and innovation, while delicately balancing unique traditions and customs. Not only do our Global Interns gain insight into different business practices and a captivating culture, they are exposed to quirky, energetic cities that are complemented by surrounding areas with a wealth of natural and ancient beauty.

Host organisation examples include:

  • EF Education First
  • Infostellar

Student testimonial

Japan was full of unexpected challenges and opportunities. I was lucky enough to work at EF for my 6-week internship - one of the largest language companies in the world. I learnt quickly to adapt to all situations and expand my skills in graphics design, communication and professional development. I found myself doing all sorts of tasks including teaching, designing important flyers, creating movies and quizzes, as well as creating English lessons.

Interning in Japan was an incredible experience! I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn and grow as a person. The professional opportunities, new cultural exposure and pro-activity I gained will stay with me throughout my life and professional career.
