From May 14 (Mon) to May 18 (Fri), the “Study Abroad Week 2012”, venues for students to meet were provided at the Student Plaza and the Mermaid Cafe so that students could talk about overseas study experiences and be introduced to various programs both on and off campus.
Over 5 days, about 260 interested students visited these events during breaks between their lessons.
There were corners to discuss overseas study, such as the “Study Abroad TALK” or “All About Overseas Study”. Additionally, a photo exhibition was held in the spiral staircase of the Student Plaza titled “Art Gallery Connecting to the World – the Charm of Overseas Study in Photos”. The events gained the attention of many students, and were voluntarily planned and conducted by the Overseas Study Advisers in connection with the International Exchange Group (students with experience studying abroad) and PA (Phoenix Assistant) students.
Participants said that hearing about the experiences of students who had studied overseas and talking with students who wished to study abroad increased their awareness, and that it was great to meet so many different people. Many students called for more events like this. It was a rare opportunity to share opinions, experiences and information.
Next, the International Exchange Group plans to hold an orientation meeting on overseas study, organized by students of the Overseas Study Adviser-Group from the end of June to the beginning of July.
