In 2014, the event was expanded and held as “Study in Japan Fair” for the first time to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Myanmar and Japan. In the same year, Okayama University was appointed by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) - Japan to implement the “Coordinator for Study in Japan (Myanmar)”. The fair was co-organized in 2015 then it has been held as host since 2016. The name of the project was changed to “Study in Japan Global Network Project in ASEAN” in 2018. In 2020-2021, Okayama University hosted the fair for Cambodia and Laos for the first time, and 2 fairs for Myanmar. In addition, we have been holding the fairs online since last year. [What is Study in Japan Global Network Project in ASEAN] Okayama University was appointed to implement the “Study in Japan Global Network Project in ASEAN” which is funded by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) - Japan in 2019. Our aim is to increase the number of international students from ASEAN 1.5 times in 5 years. In the previous phase, Okayama University was commissioned by MEXT - Japan to implement the “Coordinator for Study in Japan (Myanmar)” in 2014, aiming to double the number of students from Myanmar over a 5-year period. As a result, we were able to triple the number of students in 4 years, achieving our goal one year ahead. In 2018, the name of the project was changed to “Study in Japan Global Network Project in ASEAN” and the target region was expanded to 10 ASEAN countries. Currently, we have oversea offices in Yangon, Mandalay, Bangkok and Phnom Penh, and plan to establish one in Vientiane in 2022. From these 5 bases, we will work to recruit excellent international students from ASEAN to study in Japan.
