International Internship / Volunteer

Summer International Internship/Volunteer program 2022

1.Program Outline

Hosei University offers international volunteering and internship programs, which are designed to foster global talent by allowing students to see the world from a different perspective through various experiences abroad. With international volunteering, students will work together with people from other countries to contribute to the international community and interact directly with them, thereby deepening their understanding beyond cultural and language barriers, building communication skills, and developing students who will actively take on challenges overseas. With international internships, students will learn about different working styles and cultures while physically experiencing the economic situation and culture of different countries in response to the globalization of companies and other organizations. They help support the career development of students in the future, including employment in global companies.

 

2.University Program (*registration now closed)

The Global Education Center co-hosts the international volunteer and internship programs with partner universities and other organizations as “co-curricular programs.” Students are selected by the university to be accepted and sent to the program with the university covering part of the cost of participation. The following two online programs will be offered in Summer 2022.
