The Ishibashi Foundation Summer Fellowship was extremely well-curated and organised. My expectation when I decided to apply for the program was that the three-week duration would comprise introductory lectures of various topics across Japanese art history plus a specific trip to the British Museum’s manga exhibition (which was the only museum exhibition mentioned in the call-for-application). Therefore, the goal that I initially set for myself was to use this summer to gain some basic knowledge of Japanese art history. One can imagine how pleasantly surprised I was when I first read … Continue reading The Ishibashi Foundation Summer Fellowship: ‘A truly precious opportunity’ – Pao-chen Tang

England was my choice from day one as I wanted to get a better … Continue reading ‘My Romance with English Law at UEA’ by Charles University Student, Vojtech.

That way it would be more interesting not only to develop my English but also to develop my career. The answer was doing a summer course in marketing abroad. UEA offered a course in Branding, Advertising … Continue reading “I ended up with great friends, incredible knowledge and memories that will last forever.” – Brazilian student, Ludmilla, on how one summer turned into a Masters at UEA.
