The Japan study abroad and career fair was held on September 29th 2013. The fair was reported as one of the largest Japan study abroad fairs ever held in Myanmar. The participants ranged from different majors and backgrounds. Many students became aware that they are actually eligible for scholarship programs in Japan. It was a fruitful event for exchanging cultural as well as educational ideas between Japan and Myanmar.
A total of 252 participants pre-registered for the fair and we saw around 468 students turning up to attend the fair on the site.
The audience comprised of students from high schools and universities accompanied by their parents.
The seminar informed the audience on the topics below:
1) Education in Japan overview
2) School life in Japan overview
3) Universities and the culture of students in Japan
4) Introducing international students in Japan
5) Part time job opportunities for students in Japan
6) Scholarship and tuition information
The seminar was presided by the managing director of Fourth Valley Concierge, which was one of the sponsors and organizers of the fair.
