Monash students Japan bound next year

A number of Japanese Studies students have been recognised in this year’s JENESYS awards – in fact, Monash had the largest number of students receive the prize. 

As recipients of the JENESYS program, Nipuni Perera and Kelsey Mary Tetahe Brennan (both Japanese Studies students) will travel to Japan early next year. 

The JENESYS Programme (Japan-East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths) is a project advanced by the Japanese government (initiated by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in 2013) from the standpoint of providing a sound foundation for strong solidarity within Asia through large-scale youth exchange.

It provides the opportunity for university students from Australia to join an eight-day study tour to Japan. This year, the programme runs from 26 January to 2 February 2016 and will involve 75 students from Australia.
