Kyushu University at Study in Japan Fair in Beijing
On October 17 and 18, 2009, the Study in Japan Fair was held at the China World Exhibition Hall in Beijing. Kyushu University staffed a booth there and introduced the characteristics of its education and research, application procedures for studying at Kyushu University and other details. Approximately 500 schools from more than 30 countries around the world took part in this exhibition. A large number of Chinese students who hope to advance to higher education attended with their families. The venue was buzzing with excitement. More than 300 students visited our booth during the two-day period. Much of the attention it drew was a result of coverage in a local program broadcast on the internet. Kyushu University was selected as one of the venues for the Project for Establishing Core Universities for Internationalization (Global 30) which the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology launched in the fiscal year 2009. We aim to increase the number of international students to 3,900 by the end of fiscal 2020, approximately three times as many as the 1,292 such students in attendance as of May 2008. We will do this by uniting the efforts of the whole university to promote the Project for Establishing Core Universities for Internationalization, encompassing everything from the recruitment of international students to their post-graduate careers in an integrated manner.
