The Study in Japan for ASEAN Phnom Penh office will be officially opened at the Cambodian-Japan Cooperation Centre (CJCC) located within the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP) on June 6.
To celebrate and commemorate the opening, “Study in Japan Special Academic Seminar for Cambodia” will be held as a hybrid face-to-face and online event.
The opening was announced by OJEIC Cambodia/Study in Japan Global Network Project-ASEAN for Cambodia in a May 30 social media post, which was then shared by the Japanese embassy on June 4.
“Finally! After a long wait, Study in Japan for ASEAN Phnom Penh office will be officially opened within RUPP/CJCC on Monday, June 6,” said the announcement.
“A special certificate will be given to those who attend the seminar onsite at the Angkor-Kizuna Hall in CJCC and witness the opening of the office,” it added.
The workshop will be free of charge, with presentations about study and scholarships in Japan, introductions to Japanese universities, and shared experiences about studying in Japan.
Japan’s Okayama University was tasked with implementing the project by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology – known as MEXT – in 2019. The project aims to increase the number of ASEAN students studying in Japan by 1.5 times in a period of five years.
