Soka University Exchange Program Information Meeting Takes Place in Thailand

    On June 29, Soka University’s exchange program information meeting took place in Bangkok, Thailand. Soka University International Affairs Office Administrative Director Masahiko Tobita and a staff member from the International Affairs Office attended the meeting, participated in by over 100 high school students and their guardians.

    At the meeting, a video introducing the university’s outline and the lives of exchange students was shown, and Administrative Director Tobita shared the university’s educational curriculum, support system including scholarships, and student dormitories, as well as how the campus continues to develop as a Super Global University, aiming toward 2021—the 50th anniversary of the university’s founding.
    This was followed by individual consultations in which the participants asked details on entrance exams, the features of each faculty, and questions related to student life, including the dormitories.

    The participants shared the following comments:
    “Hearing about the fulfilling educational environment and the well-considered system to support international students, I felt that I want to study at Soka University. I want to exert myself in my studies and widely open up my potential at Soka University.” (High school student)
    “Watching the video introducing Soka University, I could see how global the campus is. Hearing about the history of international exchange since the opening of the university and how international students are welcomed these days, I felt that the university has an environment where students can study hard and be rest assured.” (Guardian)
    “During the individual consultation, a staff member answered my questions in detail, and I was able to get an image of how classes are conducted, along with a view into student life.” (Guardian)
