Vulcanus in Japan started in 1997. The programme consists of industrial placements for EU / COSME* students. It starts in September and ends in August of the following year in order to accommodate the academic year in EU Member States. The students follow: a one-week seminar on Japan,a four-month intensive Japanese language course,and then an eight-month traineeship in a Japanese company.
