Experience Japanese business and culture this trimester break with a $3000 study grant!

If you’re a high-achieving undergraduate student, don’t miss this opportunity to explore Japan–Australian industry relations!

As part of the Mitsui Immersion Program, you’ll gain amazing insights into Japanese business etiquette, customs and culture, as well as earning credit towards your course and boosting your CV!

To help with your travel costs, you can also apply for one of six New Colombo Plan (NCP) grants worth $3000!

How it works

During this two-week program, which is only open to students from Deakin and Queensland University of Technology, you’ll directly engage with employees, mentors and executives of Mitsui & Co., one of Japan’s leading multinational organisations.

You’ll visit and network with several private-sector organisations with trade connections to Australia, which may include Toyota, Fujitsu, Kimitsu Steel Mill and others. You’ll also participate in workshops and site visits, and be challenged to solve real business problems, receiving guidance from mentors at Mitsui.

Most in-country costs for this program are covered by Mitsu, including accommodation, in-country transport and some meals. Deakin unit fees still apply.

Why you should apply

Here’s what former participant Sam Merrylees says about the program:

The Mitsui Immersion Program was an enjoyable, enriching and challenging experience that I will never forget. Being afforded the opportunity to work for a large multinational company in the biggest city in the world was something I never imagined possible via university studies. The program has gifted me new knowledge, business insights and friendships. My global business experience has changed my outlook on business, the world and life in general for the greater good.
