In this seminar, the faculty members of the six national universities introduced researches, the faculty members of the Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology shared their experiences in studying in Japan, and explained general information on study in Japan including scholarship information. A lottery was also held for participants, and about 250 local university students and faculty members participated. At the individual consultation booth, each faculty member gave specific advice on questions from students. In his closing remarks, Mr. OTANI Jun, Vice President for International Affairs of Kumamoto University, stated, “Experience in studying abroad can not only deepen learning but also broaden your views.

We will continue to promote study in Japan in cooperation with local institutions and universities.
