To travel, encounter new cultures, and to gain a natural feeling to a foreign language is an important part of an education.

Thanks to a donation from Mitsubishi Corporation and the new scholarship at Stockholm University, 19 students have got the opportunity to study for one or two semesters at one of the eleven Japanese universities during 2015 and 2016.

- I was extremely happy to receive the scholarship. During my semester as an exchange student in Tokyo I was given the opportunity to complete a research trip to the island of Okinawa to learn more about "blue zones", a place where people live longer and healthier than in other places, says Charlotta Håwi, an exchange student at Waseda University for autumn semester 2015.
