1. Welcome

The Global 30 Project Secretariat is pleased to announce that the Global 30 Japan Education Fair in U.S.A will take place at the Japanese Culture and Community Center of North California (JCCCNC) in San Francisco on October 12, and at the University of California, Berkeley on October 13, 2013. The Global 30 Japan Education Fairs are organized worldwide to allow students, their guardians, teachers, and school counselors to have face-to-face consultations with the faculty members and university staff regarding all aspects of study and life in Japan. This year, we are delighted to bring our Education Fair to the United States for the first time.

The Fair is organized in close cooperation with the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) of the Japanese Government. The Global 30 Project was initiated by MEXT five years ago to draw more qualified international students to Japan. The member universities of the Global 30 Project offer degree programs in English (Bachelor, Master’s, Professional Master’s and Doctorate Degrees).
