The BOSP Stanford Program in Kyoto combines a Spring quarter of academic study in Kyoto with the option of a subsequent 10-week fully-funded summer internship, frequently located elsewhere in Japan. Stanford Program in Kyoto internships are an incredible opportunity for students to apply the cultural lessons they have learned in the academic program, to learn to live independently in Japan, to learn new technical skills, to gain distinctive and valuable work experience, as well as to further improve their cross-cultural communication skills. Some students also engage in their internships as a way of testing the waters before potentially embarking on a career in a certain sector, or even a career in Japan.
