The Cambodian-Japan Cooperation Centre (CJCC) will stage a two-day study exhibition online from October 24-25 to provide information about undergraduate and post-graduate programmes in Japan.
According to a Monday press release, students and parents interested in sending their children to study in Japan can attend on Zoom or watch the live broadcast on CJCC’s Facebook page.
Participants will meet for in-person counselling with representatives from prestigious Japanese universities and other institutions.
“This exhibition will be attended by prestigious universities in Japan and other institutions like the Study in Japan Regional Office in ASEAN. It will also be attended by the Tokyo International University and the Kyoto University International Undergraduate Programme as well as the Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University including the Kumamoto University and the Japanese Embassy in Cambodia,” according to the press release.
The programme was started in 2008 by CJCC with the support of Cambodia’s Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport.
CJCC’s Education and Culture Exchange Department deputy manager Khun Vateysreyleak told The Post on Wednesday the schools will make presentations on such things as tuition fees and scholarships.
She said scholarships will be granted to students based on their abilities and requirements.
“The programme encourages Cambodian students to study in Japan,” she said.
Ministry spokesman Ros Soveacha told The Post on Wednesday that sending Cambodian students to study in Japan every year shows cooperation and promotes education quality in Cambodia.
“This exhibition takes places with a focus on higher-level education and promoting human capital. It is a driving force in stimulating Cambodia’s digital economy through digital education,” he said.
From 1980 to 2019, he said the ministry has sent 1,258 Cambodian students to Japan to pursue their studies.
