Ritsumeikan Hosts an Online Study-Abroad Experience Event
December 21, 2020
On Thursday, July 23, 2020, associate professor Yusuke Toyoda of the College of Policy Science held an online study abroad experience event.
Due to the spread of COVID-19 this academic year, a number of study abroad programs have been cancelled, so many students have had no choice but to abandon or postpone their dreams of studying abroad. Additionally, due to the strict campus entry restrictions put in place, it has become harder for Japanese students and international students to connect. With this being the situation, this event was planned to provide Ritsumeikan students and those overseas with an opportunity to interact with one another and talk about the things they would have liked to learn on study abroad.
This event was held as part of the College of Policy Science's "International PBL Seminar 1,2" course. A variety of participants - course students from the college of Policy Science, International Students in Japan majoring in CRPS, Students who were planning to this year, and students who participated last year in the Thailand-Indonesia "International PBL Program in ASEAN Countries" study abroad program, students from sister universities who were hoping to study at Ritsumeikan University this year, as well as other interested students from Ritsumeikan University - from 7 countries, totaling 35 people gathered for this event.
