In addition to that, graduates who completed this course and 6th course students who are now studying at Hue University also attended the ceremony.

Vice-president Kurihara expressed the appreciation for all the staff who are involved in this program as well as words of celebration and encouragement for new students. He also explained the importance and value of this program for Okayama University from the view point of international strategy.

On behalf of Hue University, Vice-president Dr. Truong Quy Tung stated that they expect the cooperation of the instructors between two universities enhance the further academic exchange.

In this program, students mainly study subjects related to their major (agriculture or environmental science) at Hue University during the first one year. After that, they learn Japanese language for 6 months by the instructors of Hue University of Foreign Language. Then, they will be transferred to the graduate schools at Okayama University. Finally, they will receive Master’s Degree from Okayama University after they complete the course.

Okayama University places great expectation on the further development of this program, which we believe it is a great impact for getting more and more excellent international students not only for this program, but also for whole Okayama University.
