Overview of NIFS SCO-OP Program
  Compared with conventional short-term hands-on apprenticeships and internships(two-weeks practicums) performed without pay, the NIFS SCO-OP program features a closer collaboration between the institute, the organization(corporation and other entities) and the student, and it is performed as an advanced, professinal and pracitical education program within the institute's curriculum. Furthermore, it is being developed as an industry-academia collaborative program that is both long-term and for pay.

Program Objectives
  This model program is a three-year project which has been operating since 2006 as a trial for the SCO-OP internship program for sport professionals (on-the-job education in the health and sports industry) to be offered by NIFS with a special educational research grant from the Ministry of Education, Science, Sports, and Culture. Unlike previous off-campus sports instruction internship programs operated by NIFS, this is a long-term program which aims to provide students with a highly-specialized internship experience throughout their enrollment and benefit their future career development.
