Alumni & Friends

The Association of Friends of our department is an indepent association bringing together the alumnis of our department. It has been founded in 2011. The Association tries to link the Japanese diaspora in Dusseldorf, the alumni of Modern Japanese Studies and the current students through various activities and events. 

Every year in June the Association holds an informational event on career entry. Alumni talk about their career start, their work experience and give valuable hints to the students. 

The Association also awards a prize to the most outstanding BA- and MA-thesis each year. 

Donations are welcome!
