Message to Potential Candidates to Ogawa Seminar

I knocked this seminar’s door since I had wanted to study both education and economy. I didn’t have any academic background about education nor economy, so I wanted to be eager to study in this seminar, where lots of seniors started these studies as beginner and show their academic and practical progress now. If you are interested in this seminar, please come to see us members. Many of them are highly motivated in study and achievement of their dreams on international cooperation fields. Such members encourage me to study harder and to participate other practical opportunities, such as international conference, internship, and field work. Prof. Ogawa gives us various opportunities, and it’s us who study hard and get such great chances. Let’s study together and make our dreams come true!
