Background and Purpose of Internship

In order to cultivate an awareness of issues through social experience, IIW students are required to have internships in Japan or overseas.


About the destination

  1. The internship can take place anywhere in the world. It is not necessary to limit the internship to companies, but international organizations, NPOs, universities, etc. Please choose from a wide range of perspectives. In addition, in order to broaden your knowledge, you are allowed to carry out your internship at the University of Tokyo that is in a laboratory different from your own specialty.
  2. Those who already have experience for a job in institutions may be exempted from this requirement at their own request.
  3. Internships at multiple locations are also acceptable.
