There will also be behind-the-scenes tours of Japanese collections contained in the Fitzwilliam Museum and the University Library, and advice on how to apply to study Japanese at Cambridge.

The nominating teacher is asked to provide a short personalised statement in support of the student’s application.  The application form can be downloaded here.
