Message to Potential Candidates to Ogawa Seminar

While studying at the University, I had a wonderful experience of living in the international dormitory and connecting with many exchange students from all around the world. I also had a chance to travel to 25 countries and see the life in the third world countries with my own eyes. This led me to the realization that I wanted to work in the international cooperation field.I was interested in the Educational Development studies, so choosing the Professor Ogawa Seminar was one of the best options for me. Professor Ogawa Seminar gives you a great opportunity to acquire practical knowledge about economics and statistics in education. In addition to this, Professor Ogawa kindly gives his students many opportunities to grow as future professionals, which includes not only presentations at the conferences, but also internships and fieldwork in the developing countries. Everyone, who is considering joining Professor Ogawa Seminar, I advise you to pay a visit once. I’m looking forward to studying with you.
