On September 23, 2023, Kanazawa University hosted the “Study and Work in Japan Fair for Thailand 2023” in Bangkok, Thailand.
This fair was conducted as part of the “Study in Japan Global Network Project (ASEAN)”. The purpose of this initiative is to promote studying abroad from Thailand to Japan and to facilitate the integration of international students into Japanese society. Since the start of the project in 2019, this fair marked the first on-site event after the Covid-19 pandemic.
At the Knowledge Exchange for Innovation Center (KX), one of Kanazawa University’s liaison offices in Bangkok, thirty-one organizations (including institutions that provided materials and information on the website) exhibited and provided a wide range of information about universities and companies to approximately 450 Thai high school students, university students, and working adults who attended the event.
Many participants, showing high interest in studying in Japan and working in Japan or Japanese-affiliated companies in Thailand, obtained useful information from participating institutions and individual consultants.
In addition, during the final evaluation of the KAGAYAKI AWARD, the centerpiece of the fair, the six finalists selected from 124 teams presented their excellent research on stage. At the same time, 13 teams, as the next highest achievers, displayed and presented their posters. Many participants were fascinated by the outstanding research presented by these high school students. We discovered high school students in Thailand who have high potential for significant achievements and increased motivation for research.
In our post-event survey, nearly 90% of the respondents indicated that they were “satisfied or very satisfied” with the event, which concluded as a great success.
