Since 2018, North Asia CAPE has sent a cohort Māori and Pasifika scholars to Taiwan for a four-week language and cultural immersion programme. During this trip, scholars not only learn Mandarin but also explore the connections between their indigenous Māori and Pasifika roots and the culture and history of the indigenous people of Taiwan.
We are hoping to be able to run this programme in 2021. For more information contact us at email@example.com

The purpose of Te Hononga-ā-Kiwa is to increase Māori business capability and awareness and improve Māori business engagement in North Asia. Each year’s programme is developed to facilitate business engagement for Māori tertiary students and businesspeople, and each has a key focus area which has included: primary industry, indigenous development, sports, branding, and cultural tourism.
Applications for a 2020 virtual tour are now live, with a programme of development focused on Taiwan and Japan. To read more and apply click here

For two years North Asia CAPE has offered 15 fully-funded study tour opportunities to first-year university students of the Japanese language. This enables students to experience first-hand the value of learning Japanese in-country, and encourages them to continue with their language study at University.
This four-week intensive immersion programme is designed to improve students’ language proficiency and deepen their understanding of Japan’s culture through experiencing different cultural activities. Small class sizes and support throughout the programme by qualified Japanese-language instructors create an optimal learning atmosphere.
Throughout the programme, participants learn about Japanese culture and society while improving their Japanese language skills by staying at a homestay.
We hope to run this programme in April 2021. For more details contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
