Dear Sir or Madam,

We are re-launching the “Vulcanus in Japan” programme through the EU and Cosme Universities.

The trainee programme VULCANUS IN JAPAN offers industrial placements in companies in Japan to EU and COSME university students of engineering, high-tech or other scientific fields, enrolled when applying- in between the 4th official year of studies and the penultimate year of PhD. (Should your university offer only a 3-year course of studies, your students will not be eligible. In this case, please disregard this email).

The programme lasts one year, from September 2021 to August 2022.
You will find more information for your attention in the documents listed below.

This year, given that many universities will use distance-learning, we are only sending you this promotional information by email (not by post). Please forward it to your students.
We would be grateful if you could promote this programme within your university.

Applications must be submitted online, between 10 January and 10 February 2021.
To prepare their application, students must obtain some documents from your university, including a certificate of enrollment (or equivalent document) in English. We would be very grateful if you could support them.
Below, all the relevant links (shareable with your students) with information on the programme and on the application process.

Should you require further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you for your kind support.

Thank you very much for the interest you are showing in the Vulcanus programme.
