We accept interns from many different backgrounds. There are students that are majoring in law, economics, tourism, education, anthropology, chemistry, engineering, international relations, and so on at both bachelor and master levels. Interns are coming not only from Japan, but also from various countries including Germany, the United States, Australia and China just to name a few. In 2017 alone, ISEP welcomed 43 interns, 17 of whom were non-Japanese. The gender ratio of interns is usually 50/50.
The Internship at ISEP is not exclusive to university students, but is open to those with professional working experience as well. With this great diversity, talking to other ISEP interns can bring you a whole new perspective of how you see the world.
Although some students are already familiar with renewable energy when they start thier internship at ISEP, no prior knowledge in renewable energy is required as long as you are interested in the topic. Depending on their schedule, some ISEP interns work fulltime for a few months, while others work a few times a week for a longer period of time.
