Opportunities abound for studying in Japan plus working as paid interns.
On March 23, a promotional orientation session was held in our School of Oriental Languages for its second and third year Japanese language majors. These student attendants need to be better informed of such study-and-work opportunities. Also present were such project managers among its staff teachers. This introduction session was presided over by its vice party secretary.
Its key-note presenter was School Director Fu Tiemin, who has just returned from his 3-week inspection tour in Japan, visiting Japanese schools and business firms there.
Director Fu explained that an aging Japanese society resulted in a shortage of labour force for enterprises and a lack of students for schools, thus translating into internship and employment opportunities for foreign students.
Next, Director Fu briefed his students on the current situation of our students in these aspects and our school policies regarding studying and internships in Japan. He clarified his point that the ultimate aim was to obtain school offers or job offers. He illustrated his points about the current situation of Chinese students and interns there.
Regarding short-term studies and internships in Japan, Director Fu made his point: such short stays aimed to further strengthen practical Japanese language skills, to get a firsthand experience with Japanese society and businesses, and to lay a solid foundation for future studies in Japanese universities, and employment in Japan or back home in China.
In conclusion, Dean Fu Tiemin reiterated our practical support from our project program managers for our students when they study and intern in Japan.
Another presenter was Professor Kang Xinyuan, who elaborated on specific issues, such as the content and nature of internships and the conversion of academic credits. She was followed by brief talks given by each and every project manager.
Through these presentations, listeners got a clear picture of each and every school mentioned in terms of their strengths and advantages in their geographical locations, teaching faculties, transportation conveniences, accommodation, and course subject offerings.
Ever since the establishment of this School of East Asian Languages, they have already assigned over 130 local Chinese students to Japan, where they have been staying as international students and overseas interns.
And our School of Oriental Languages has always aimed to send the majority of our students to study and work in Japan and Korea。
