A memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the University of Baguio (UB) and Kawasaki City of Japan, Health and Welfare Bureau – Elderly Health and Nursing Care Promotion Section has been signed last May 16.
In the MOU, UB will send internship students to Kawasaki City who will further their knowledge and skills in performing nursing care duties at nursing homes. UB will also deploy students interested in improving their Japanese language proficiency to Kawasaki City, an industrial city in the Greater Tokyo area in Japan.
Meanwhile, in the memorandum of agreement signed between UB and International Trainee Network (ITN), UB will endorse qualified UB graduates who will participate in J1 internship program. Majority of the participants in the said internship program will be those who completed their international on-the-job training in Thailand or in the U.S.A. On the other hand, ITN will, among others, evaluate and determine candidates’ eligibility for the J-1 program according to the U.S. Department of State’s current regulations.
The J-1 program, monitored by the U.S. State Department, covers cultural exchange opportunities in the United States.
