On Tuesday, June 16, the GSGS conducted its second information session this year for prospective students. The dean, Ichiro Tomiyama, gave an opening address, and our assistant dean of admissions and assistant dean of academic affairs provided overviews of the entrance examination, scholarships and other information about the GSGS.
We currently have 60 students from a wide and diverse range of places, including the U.S, Mexico, Canada, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Nepal, Vietnam, South Korea, Mauritius, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan, Iran, Lebanon, Palestine, Norway, the Netherlands and Uganda. More than half of the participants attending the information session this time were from China and Vietnam.
Because many more people attended the session than expected, students were divided between two rooms for consultation about their specific research theme and for meeting with faculty of the various clusters. Since many of them already had specific and detailed research plans, they continued their consultations even after the scheduled period had ended.
Our next information session is scheduled for Saturday, July 11, from 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm at the Doshisha University office in Tokyo. From 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm we will explain our advanced doctoral program in "Global Resource Management."
