‘Study in Japan Fair 2015 in Malaysia’ and ‘Study in Japan Info Day’
Kumamoto University recently attended ‘the Study in Japan Fair 2015 (International Education Fair: Malaysia)’ held by the Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO) on December 19 and 20, and ‘the Study in Japan Info Day’ hosted by the Institut Bahasa Teikyo, held on December 21.
‘The Study in Japan Fair 2015’ is held with the participation of Japanese educational institutions so that local students who wish to study in Japan can find an educational institution that best matches their expectations, so they can achieve their academic pursuits in Japan. Approximately 3,500 local students visited the Japanese pavilion in this fair.
Our staff members used documents and posters to explain the University’s characteristics and the procedures required to study in Japan, to 92 students visited our booth.
Institut Bahasa Teikyo (IBT), the host organization of ‘the Study in Japan Info Day’, is one of the overseas educational institutions established by the Teikyo University Group. IBT provides students in Malaysia who wish to study in Japan with courses in Japanese language and basic subjects (e.g. mathematics, physics, chemistry, social studies and English).
‘The Study in Japan Info Day’ was held for the first time, 10 universities including Kumamoto University and a vocational college in Japan attended the event. We provided IBT students and local visitors with information about the University using briefing materials.
At both events, students visiting our booth were very much interested in Japan. In particular, many IBT students have already attained Japanese proficiency at the level of being able to handle a normal conversation with native Japanese speakers, and are very eager to study in Japan.
Attending these events has increased recognition of our University in Malaysia. Moreover, it was a valuable opportunity for us to interact directly with local students and understand their profound desire to study in Japan.
