The Discovery Program for Global Learners Holds 2022 Admissions Information Session


June 27, 2022

On June 18, the Discovery Program for Global Learners (aka "GDP") held an online admissions information session. A total of 120 high school students, parents, and high school teachers from both Japan and abroad participated in the event.

During the information session, the program faculty gave a general explanation of the program and its admissions process, after which current students elaborated on their experiences as GDP students. Then, participants were divided into small groups for a Q&A session with program faculty and current students, giving participants a chance to get a feel for the program for themselves. The meeting was a great success, with many participants coming prepared to actively ask questions about the admissions process, curriculum, and student life after having watched a video introducing the program in advance.

GDP was established in October 2017 as a faculty where international students from all over the world, returnees, and graduates from high schools in Japan can come together to study subjects from a wide variety of fields while sharing their diverse cultures and experiences. The program aims to nurture students to be active on the global stage by encouraging them to design a unique program of study that is not restricted by department or faculty.
