On 13 December Osaka City University participated in the Study in Japan Fair 2015, organized by the Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO) in Bangkok, Thailand. A total of 66 institutes participated, including 21 national universities, 3 public universities and 28 private universities. The fair attracted 1,961 visitors.
OCU participated with a booth, where interested students could obtain information about OCU faculties, courses, facilities, admission process as well as get individual advice, with OCU staff able to talk with students in Thai, English and Japanese. There was a small but steady flow of students visiting our booth, with an especially high number interested in the Faculty and Graduate School of Business.
Simultaneously, JASSO was offering seminars and lectures throughout the day explaining students how to prepare for study in Japan. There were also various demonstrations such as kendo, kimono wearing and origami.
Japan and Japanese culture is enjoying a high degree of popularity in Thailand. We hope we have gained new interest in Thailand for students to come and study at OCU.
