7th Tsukuba University’s Summer Research Program

Tsukuba University is going to host the 7th Summer Research Program from July 25th (Mon) to August 5th (Fri), 2016 and planning to invite international students from Brazil, France, Indonesia, Japan, Taiwan, UK, USA, and Vietnam. Selected students will be assigned to a lab within the campus of the Faculty of Medicine or Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences. The students take part in research, attend lectures and present their research results. During the 2 week period, both international and Japanese students are expected to have an opportunity for cultural exchange and communication.

The university plans to have parties, weekend events, special lectures, and cultural talks are also planned to provide the students with opportunities to learn about Japanese culture. The students are expected to work hard and play hard and get the most out of this program. I sincerely hope that the Summer Research Program becomes an unforgettable experience for all the participating students.
