Explanatory Session about Graduate School Study Abroad

2015-12-21 (Mon) 16:30 - 18:30

The Japanese Graduate Student Association in the US was established by Japanese students living in the U.S. in order to support individuals who'd like to earn a degree at a university overseas. The association will hold explanatory sessions about graduate school study abroad at universities in Japan this winter.

Have you ever thought of going to graduate school overseas? Outstanding students all over the world gather to inspire and learn from one another. Many of them receive support for academic and living expenses through working as research assistants or teaching assistants.

There are options that you may have never thought of, and such chances are available to you. Join us in hearing from individuals who have earned a degree from a university overseas.
Prior application is not necessary but if/when all seats are filled, a priority will be given to advance registrations. Registration will be held at the door as well, so please come to the venue well in advance. For more information about the content of the explanatory session and directions to the venues, please visit the Japanese Graduate Student Association in the US website.
