On January 28 my Japanese program was able to receive a presentation about Okayama University and its Discovery Program. I learned about the extremely lenient tuition and room and board fees and how international students are already eligible for the scholarship provided by the Discovery program. I really enjoyed the university’s atmosphere and environment. I also appreciated how considerate they were with accepting students. The acceptance to the college is not strict at all and they keep your GPA out of their choosing process because they want to give everyone a fair chance. I just thought that was so caring and sympathetic, which is why I have decided that I would start to look at this college and other colleges in Japan. The presentation really pushed me to research about more of what’s available in my country, but also internationally.
