From September 2018 to February 2019, two BSc Government students in their third year of the degree went to study a semester at Waseda University in Japan. 

This exchange was partially funded through an Erasmus+ grant. Both Aoife Tierney and Ciaran Sullivan had an amazing experience.


Aoife says:

‘It was great to spend an extended period of time in Tokyo to see as much as I could.

It was very interesting to experience a different education system, there was far more emphasis placed on participation which I enjoyed.

I enjoyed meeting other international students from all over the world and learning about Japanese culture.’
