Early Spring Issue (Apr. 2013)


Cultivating global professionals through exchange with ASEAN universities

Two programs selected for the MEXT’s Re-Inventing Japan Project

Two programs from Waseda University were selected for the 2012 Re-Inventing Japan Project (Support for the Formation of Collaborative Programs with ASEAN Universities).

The project seeks to cultivate professionals who will perform globally and of whom Japan can be proud, as well as to ensure the quality of academic record management and mutual recognition of university credits in an international framework. Furthermore, the project provides priority financial support to other projects for overseas study by Japanese students and projects for forming inter-university exchange, such as exchange with ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) universities that strategically accept foreign students.

Waseda University plans to conduct two programs: "BUILD-UP Cooperative Education Program for Global Human Resource Development in Earth Resources Engineering" (School and Graduate School of Creative Science and Engineering, in cooperation with Kyushu University) and the "Cyclical Educational Program for Human Resources Development through Multi-faceted Exchanges by Utilizing Japanese Language Education" (Graduate School of Japanese Applied Linguistics).
