On December 11th and 12th 2014, Hiroshima University held a study abroad information session in Taiwan. The first session (Dec. 11) was held at the National Central University, where the HU Taiwan Office is located. The second (Dec. 12) took place at the National Chengchi University, one of HU’s interuniversity agreement partners.
At these two locations 5 graduate schools and 2 programs were introduced: Graduate School of Integrated Arts and Sciences, Graduate School of Social Sciences, Graduate School of Science, Graduate School of Biomedical & Health Sciences, Graduate School of Engineering, the Phoenix Leader Education Program (Hiroshima Initiative) for Renaissance from Radiation Disaster and the Taoyaka Program for creating a flexible, enduring, peaceful society. The participants were able to receive concrete and detailed explanations relating to their areas of interest from teachers of each graduate school. At both meetings, approximately 80 students took part and many of them took advantage of the private consultation and eagerly asked questions. Furthermore, officials from the International Affairs Division of Hiroshima Prefecture joined this session and promoted the attractions of Hiroshima Prefecture, such as Miyajima, which is inscribed as a World Heritage Site. They also introduced Japanese culture by playing kendama (cup-and-ball game) and making origami (the art of folding paper into various figures), which attracted a great deal of interest from the participants.
Hiroshima University has set itself the urgent issues of fostering human personnel able to be active in global society and increasing the admission of international students. For this purpose, HU organizes study abroad information sessions in several countries and expects that these activities will stimulate many foreign students to come to our university for studying.
