On Wednesday, May 21, 2014, the Russian Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Japan H. E. Mr. Evgeny AFANASIEV visited APU with his secretary and Mr. SHIMURA Manabu, a member of the Oita Prefectural Assembly. The group held discussions with President KORENAGA Shun, Vice President Francisco FELLIZAR, Vice President KAMIKO Akio and international students from Russia.
One of the student participants, SUKONKINA Olga (College of International Management, 1st year, Russian Federation), commented on the meeting. "The Ambassador is very interested in Japan's culture and education, and he asked many questions about APU. As the representative of Russia, he said he was carefully considering the possibility of a short-term exchange program between APU and Russian university. President KORENAGA also said he would work to realize a short-term exchange program to Russia. I am extremely grateful to APU for giving me the opportunity to speak with my Ambassador."
There are currently three Russian students enrolled at APU, and to date, 11 Russian students have studied at APU.
