Supervisor for Vulcanus in Europe 2014-15
We have hosted Vulcanus student Sari Nishimura in our team from August 2014 until the end of March 2015.
The experience having Sari with us has been really positive. We learnt a lot about the Japanese culture and can understand it a bit more now. Sari is a brilliant student and managed to improve her English and German language skills a lot. Regarding her performance here, after the obligatory period of adaptation, she began to understand our project and managed to work both correctly and efficiently.
I find the VULCANUS programme a really good tool for Japanese students to know a bit more about Europe and to have a first experience in a professional environment. Culture, behaviour, traditions, rules, etc… All this is crucial for their personal and professional development. Furthermore, this is a business world, therefore this experience will help them in the near future when they work in international companies.
