AAM send Mark to Japan
Aberdeen Asset Management (AAM) is supporting another Scottish student for a spell in Japan.
Napier University student Mark Livingstone is the latest winner in the Aberdeen-based investment giant’s annual Thomas Blake Glover Aberdeen Asset Scholarship programme.
Mr Livingstone will embark on an intensive language study course in Tokyo this summer, building on his own selfstudy of Japanese.
The 19-year-old is studying digital media and harbours hopes of working in 3D design and animation in the entertainment industry, an area in which Japan is recognised as a global leader.
Initiated by the Japan Society of Scotland and supported by AAM, the scholarship gives Scottish students the chance to visit Japan to study language, culture and tradition during a six week fully-funded course at the International Christian University in Tokyo.
