Online Study in Japan Weeks 2020 was held.
We held “Online Study in Japan Weeks 2020 (Myanmar)” for Myanmar students who are interested in Studying in Japan, over a two-week period, from August 22 to September 5.
11 Universities from the Consortium of Six National Universities in Japan, and Myanmar-Japan Platform for Human Resource Development, participated in the online event. Each university introduced their own information on Facebook and the event website. Additionally, MAJA (Myanmar Association of Japan Alumni), introduced the information on entrance exams and scholarships.
Students had the opportunity to contact each university directly and ask their questions or concerns by participating in group discussions took place over Zoom and other trans-communication platforms. Approximately 836 students from Myanmar participated from September 1 to September 5.
Participants gave positive feedback, stating, “I want to participate in an event like this again,” and “I was able to learn valuable information about studying abroad.” Throughout the event, it became clear that students are thinking positively about future study abroad options, despite the current situation under the coronavirus pandemic. As such, our university plans to continue holding study in Japan fairs, seminars, and events for students from ASEAN countries.
