Note to the Summer Term: This is quota managed intensive with a total quota of 15 across JAPN30012 and JAPN20012. Students must have completed Japanese 8. Students must apply to be considered for this intensive subject by filling in application form. Applications are reviewed to ensure they meet requirements and are then ranked based on WAM. Should the number of applications exceed places available at this point, preferences will be given to those who had declared a major, minor or are taking a Diploma in Languages (Japanese) and who have not previously travelled to Japan. All applicants are interviewed by the selection panel including the subject coordinator and the program convener, and possibly a representative from Osaka University, during the selection process. During the interview, applicants will be assessed on their conversation skills in Japanese and adaptability to intercultural and collaborative work situations to determine the likely benefits for them of undertaking the program. Their cultural awareness will also be assessed as the program involves a placement with a host family and visit to workplaces.
