Class Objectives
/Class Outline
Through internship activities, contribute to solving industrial and social issues, and widen career options for graduate students. Conduct an internship for about a month or longer in principle. For candidates, the designated application form and the recommendation letter from his/her supervisor (at the enrolled graduate school) needs to be submitted. All candidates should receive advice and guidance through pre-counseling, etc., before starting the internship. After the internship, all interns are required to present their internship experiences.

Students need to participate in the orientation and consult with career advisors at the Global Career Design Center (henceforth, “the Center”) first. The Center provide supports for the following long-term internships:
(1)MEXT Cooperative Education through Research Internships (two months or longer; paid)
(2)Internships at the host organizations in a list the Center provides (one month or longer; paid and unpaid)
(3)Internships other than the above

Because conditions and procedures may differ depending on internships, students are expected to consult with the career advisor. Students make regular reports to the career advisor through HIRAKU-PF during internships and present their accomplishments at the achievement presentation after completing the internships.
