(A major reason for Japanese students to apply is to acquire experience of working within a team. They will gain an understanding of European approaches to team-working, decision-making and cross-cultural issues).
'Vulcanus in Europe' is, in principle, open to all EU27 member states.
However, visa and work permit – applicable rules depend on national legislation and may evolve.
The EU-Japan Centre will reconfirm the compatibility of Vulcanus in Europe in your country, through liaising with your national authority in September/October.
Based on our past experience, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that potential difficulties may only be notified to the EU-Japan Centre then.
One of the selection criteria will be the compatibility of Vulcanus with the rules in force at the time of the selection.
