Japanese Programme Fair

09/06/2017, 16:00 - 20:00


Co-hosted by the School of Modern Languages, the Japanese Programme and Wales Japan Club, the Japanese Programme Fair will start with a talk by Cardiff University alumni and graduate of the Japanese Programme, Kalina Konova. This will be followed by a speech contest with first, second and final year Japanese students.

Kalina Konova is a graduate of the Japanese programme who is now employed by Sony UK Tec. The talk is titled “My Career After Studying Japanese at Cardiff University” and will be followed by a Q&A session. The talk will be given in the medium of English. Kalina Konova studied Business and Japanese at Cardiff University and won the first prize at the Cardiff Japanese Speech Contest 2014. Kalina was subsequently offered an internship at Sony UK Tec and was employed directly thereafter.

Following the talk and Q&A session, a speech contest will take place wherein first and second year Japanese programme students will discuss social issues about their own countries, and final year students will give presentations about Japanese society and culture. The fair will be carried out entirely in the Japanese language and an internship opportunity with a member of the Wales Japan Club will be offered the first prize winner.

Following the distribution of the internship to the first prize winner, there will be a wine reception and buffet dinner.
