Japan Educational Seminar 2013 (Indonesia)
17 universities consisting of 12 member universities of the “Global 30” Project and 4 other universities who already have deep ties with Indonesia, held the Japan Educational Seminars on 26 and 27 January 2013 in Jakarta and Bandung. The seminars were intended to ultimately advance the globalization of Japanese higher education.
Thanks to the strategic PR activities focusing on highly qualified students as prospective applicants, the seminars saw the participation of nearly 2,500 people over the two days which hit the highest number since the inception of the Global 30 project. 870 participants visited at Atma Jaya Catholic University in Jakarta on Saturday 26 January, and 1,577 at Bandung Institute of Technology (BIT) on Saturday 27 January. This success owes a lot to the dedicated support and assistance from the Embassy of Japan in Indonesia who strived to reach out to as many as top-tier high-schools in Indonesia as possible to publicize the scheduled event.
Prof. Masashi Haneda, vice president of the University of Tokyo gave the opening remarks at the seminar in Jakarta on behalf of the “Global 30” Project. Following Prof. Haneda’s speech, Minister Yusuke Shindo of Japanese Embassy in Indonesia gave a welcome speech where he remarked that human resource exchanges through the higher education programs would become more and more important to the two countries in the continuous efforts to deepen bilateral relations.
The formal presentation session started with Mr. Kuniaki Sato, Deputy Director, Higher Education Policy Planning Division, Higher Education Bureau, Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), who had made a presentation on the “Global 30” Project and life in Japan. His side remarks on Japanese pop culture were particularly welcomed by participants.
The presentation session was subsequently followed by the representatives of the universities present delivering demonstration lectures and/or presented their university as a best place to pursue degrees program. Participants particularly seemed to enjoy the demonstration lectures based on the most recent studies or cutting-edge research, so much so that the room could not seat all of those wished to listen to the lectures. While the presentations being given in the two separate rooms, faculty and staff members provided detailed information regarding academic curriculum or course designs to prospective applicants at the consultation booths in another section of the venue.
It was notable that participants showed great interest in the fields of engineering, science and business administration to pursue as degrees programs. On the following day, the universities visited top-tier high-schools in Jakarta or Bandung to further publicize degrees programs conducted in English.
