Internship at the EU-Japan Centre

Applications are closed for the time being, due to the reaching of our intern quota. Interested students are invited to contact us from September 2023 onwards.

Are you a student interested by the Japanese industrial sector and the economic relations between the EU and Japan? Do you wish to gain professional experience in an international environment and possibly jumpstart your European career?

 

Throughout the year, the Brussels office of the EU-Japan Centre is hosting students wishing to conduct an internship in the framework of their university program.

  • You have to conduct a compulsory internship through your EU-based university, or it provides opportunities to conduct a voluntary internship

Whether you are a bachelor or master student, you may have to conduct a compulsory internship as part of your university program (ECTS-rewarded internship), or you might have the chance to undertake a voluntary internship with an university contract. Conditions for such internships depend on the country and institution you come from, so please consult with your faculty for further details. Please note that such compulsory or voluntary internship cannot exceed a period of 4 months. You must be enrolled in a EU-based university.

Tasks:

Within the framework of the internship, the intern will primarily be focusing on research (covering industrial sectors and cultural aspects of Japan) as a way to update our information website: https://www.eubusinessinjapan.eu/

Besides that, other tasks might be requested upon needs based on the intern's skills and interests.

Requirements:

An advanced English level (at least C1) and an intermediate Japanese level (at least N3) are required. The intern should also have an interest in Japanese culture, industrial sectors, and EU-Japan relations.

 

Note: this internship is unpaid. A stipend covering expenses (10 euros per day of internship) will be provided.

If you are available in Brussels, you might be welcomed at our office.

If you come from elsewhere in Belgium or from abroad, it is also possible to be part of our team on a remote-working basis.

The EU-Japan Centre does not provide support to obtain visa.

 

Interested? Please send your CV and motivation letter (including the preferred internship's length and starting date) to Mrs. Sofia Smerzi at s.smerzi(at)eu-japan.eu. Candidacies are taken on a rolling basis.
