Embassy of Japan in Bangladesh and North South University (NSU) jointly organised "Study in Japan Seminar 2020" webinar.
The webinar was held today to provide information on pursuing higher education in Japan, the Japanese government scholarship (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology; MEXT Scholarship), studying and life in Japan as well as its advantages.
More than 1500 people, including students and faculty members of North South University, participated in this seminar live.
Two speakers from North South University who completed their degrees in Japan shared their study experiences and daily life as international students in Japan.
"I hope that we will be able to recruit those promising and capable students to go to Japan and further strengthen our bilateral partnership," said Japanese Ambassador ITO Naoki.
"It might be difficult to imagine studying abroad amid this pandemic, but I am sure that there will be plenty of opportunities and wider possibilities for young students once we overcome the Covid-19," he added.
Director of Office of External Affairs of NSU Dr Katherine Li mentioned: "I can speak from my own experience in Japan that if you would like to go to Japan as a student, there are many opportunities to study, to learn Japanese, and even to get a job."
"Japan is actively looking for qualified employees in their workforce, and they are generous enough to help to train people in learning the language, culture and skills to make it possible for you to work in Japan," she added.
