"STUDY IN JAPAN!" Online Orientation for German Students

NUEC organized this online information session, the first such format for students in Germany, in partnership with Kyoto University European Center (Heidelberg) and Sophia University Cologne Office, as well as the kind support of the Consulate-General of Japan in Munich.

Aimed at undergraduate and graduate students at our exchange partner universities in Germany, we provided the latest consular information on student visa and governmental scholarships, together with an introduction to the participating universities' international programs. Lively Q&A sessions in the break-out rooms continued for up to an hour after the presentations ended!

The event was a great success, with over 100 registered viewers from 7 partner universities across Germany.
