Japan aspires student exchange with Yakutia, Russia


Japan is interested in developing relations in the field of education with Russian universities, the Official Information Portal of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) reports. This issue was discussed during a meeting with the new Consul General of Japan in Khabarovsk Masanori Fukushima held at the North-Eastern Federal University (NEFU).

According to the diplomat, it is worth expanding student exchanges between Japanese universities and universities in Yakutsk. Currently, three students from Japan are studying at NEFU. Soon NEFU employees will go on internship in Japan. The Russkiy Mir Foundation allocated funds for it.

The guests were told that the university conducts joint research work. In particular, the climate study takes place with the participation of the University of Hokkaido. They have also an opportunity to get a joint master degree. An international summer school of the Russian language opens in Yakutsk every year.

The Russian and Japan Cross-Year promoted the development of cooperation. In the spring, more than 2000 people took part in the festival of Japanese culture.

After the meeting the guests expressed their willingness to assist in the implementation of projects planned in NEFU. They talked about international grant competitions announced by the Japanese government which students and university professors can participate in.
