Next, Morito Institute of Global Higher Education Director Toshiyuki Sato gave a congratulatory speech, in which he encouraged the students, saying “It would be wonderful if through this program you will become interested in Hiroshima University, and come study here in the near future.”
Following the addresses, an orientation session was held by a faculty member of the Morito Institute of Global Higher Education, to which the students listened attentively until the end.
