Japan – with its pop culture, dense cities, mountains and incredible history – is full of opportunities. And The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation is funding 8 UK students to study in Japan!
The Daiwa Scholarship is a 19-month programme designed to further UK-Japan links. You’ll study Japanese language for a year in Tokyo, live with a family for a month, and complete a 6-month work placement in anything from an NGO, to a think-tank, or an architecture firm.
King’s alum and Daiwa graduate Louis feels that the programme ‘went beyond ‘a good experience’ to become completely formative – it’s difficult to imagine how my life would have gone without it’.
And this is a common theme in Daiwa scholar testimonials – from career inspiration, to personal growth, solid friendships, and Japanese fluency, the Daiwa scholarship opportunity has changed lives.
