A group of 10 students will spend a month studying at an Aberdeen university as part of an international development programme.
The students, from nine different universities in Japan, will spend four weeks in the north-east as part of the Nippon Foundation Ocean Innovation Consortium Summer School 2018.
Modules will be led by Robert Gordon University (RGU) staff on marine engineering, oil and gas, and offshore renewables.
The group will spend a day at the Equinor Hywind Offshore Wind Farm in Peterhead and go through an intensive three days offshore safety training.
As part of the programme, the group will visit the Fettercairn Distillery and Dunnottar Castle. There will also be a trip to the Braemar Highland Gathering.
Melissa Donald, summer school project manager at RGU, said: “We are thrilled, for the third year running, to be working with the Nippon Foundation.”
