Why Internships

WASEDA University has been aiming to become a “Global University”. Every year, the intake of international students increases by about 10%. Now, the University hosts over 7,100. The number of such students visiting the Career Center, inquiring about and seeking internships is also on the rise. To further the understanding of what work life is like in Japanese companies and Multinational companies in Japan, the Career Center is seeking potential corporate partners (bilingual – Japanese & English, and/ or English only) to join our community of existing internship collaborations.

What is Internship?

Internship is vital to a well-rounded tertiary education. The Career Center aims to provide internship opportunities for our students to learn “on-the-job”, before they step foot into society. Through these hands-on and practical activities, the Career Center hopes that the students will be further motivated in their studies, become even more focused in their quest for knowledge and problem-solving, and to take this opportunity to plan for their future.

Points to Note

  • At least five working days. It should not be confused with a part-time job. It must not be related to any recruitment drives or direct job offer.
  • Students will apply directly to the hosting internship organizations. The Career Center is not responsible in mailing the applications to the hosts.
