Study in Japan Fair 2015 in Vietnam

Kumamoto University participated in the Study in Japan Fair 2015 in Vietnam. The events were organized by the Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO) and held in Hanoi on October 31 (Sat) and Ho Chi Minh City on November 1 (Sun), 2015.

 

This fair had two main features: (1) an overall seminar, including explanations of Japanese government scholarships and testimonials of students who have studied in Japan, and (2) individual consultations provided by each participating institution. As many as 1,405 students who hope to study in Japan (1,396 last year) visited the Hanoi Venue, while 1,433 students (1,265 last year) visited Ho Chi Minh City Venue.

 

Approximately 100 institutions participated in the fair, and about 200 students visited our booth over two days. We talked to them about Kumamoto, the advantages of our university and the procedures needed to come and study in our universities in English, with interpretation assistance.

Most of the students have never been to Japan, nor do they know the location of Kyushu, let alone Kumamoto. However, since many are already studying at Japanese language schools in Vietnam, the brochures written in Japanese were the first to run out. We received many questions about our curriculum, entrance examination system and scholarships, and the students showed their positive intentions to study in Japan.

 

This fair was a great public relations opportunity, a chance to introduce our university to enthusiastic Vietnamese students.
