It has always been a wish of mine to do co-op abroad to gain valuable work experience, but the opportunities always seemed quite minimal, especially for a Health Sciences student like myself.
Reflection & Tips
Reflection

Needless to say, my first four months here have been anything but mundane. For those curious about embarking on an International Co-op term, I highly advise you to pursue working abroad (be it in Japan or in other countries) if the opportunity arises. No doubt it will be different; it may even fall outside the boundaries of your comfort zone, but it’ll allow you to fully immerse yourself in another culture, learn more about yourself and your own capabilities. Personally, travelling to Japan was a very big step for me. However, I took the plunge and am now having a great time learning and exploring. What else awaits me for the next four months, I’m not too sure. What I do know is that no matter what, it’ll be a fantastic experience. Until then, じゃあね (Jaa ne: See you later)!
