Waseda University and affiliated schools sign MOU with ENZ to promote study abroad program

On June 28, Waseda University along with five of its affiliated junior and senior high schools signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Education New Zealand (ENZ) at the Embassy of New Zealand (Japan) to promote study abroad program in New Zealand during early stages of education. The university hopes that junior and senior high school students who participate in the program would eventually go on student exchange program during their tertiary education at Waseda University. This is part of the university’s effort in encouraging all Waseda University students to go on overseas student exchange for at least once to gain global perspectives.

“Ranking first in the Worldwide Educating for the Future Index 2017 by Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), New Zealand is not only highly regarded in education but also a safe country that welcomes all. It is no doubt a country we strongly encourage our students to consider studying in. I hope many junior and senior high schools students at our affiliated schools would consider spending some time in New Zealand to experience a different culture and its values, as well as to gain global perspectives.”

“This arrangement of education cooperation is a significant milestone for Education New Zealand because it’s first of its kind with a Japanese university. Japan has been a great friend to New Zealand with strong education linkages. More than 3000 New Zealanders have participated in the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) program since 1987 and on the per capital basis, New Zealand has received more places on JET than any other countries. I want to extend my sincere gratitude to the members from Waseda University and its affiliated schools who are all here today to create what I think is a new and exciting opportunity to build our long and enduring relationship.”
