In 2019, the APU Global Research Program launched as an overseas study program in response to feedback from students. They said that programs do not cover topics that students want to learn about, and that participants want to carry out local surveys on their own but do not know how to plan and perform these projects.The new APU Global Research Program will allow students to conduct research on topics of interest related to Environment & Development, Hospitality & Tourism, Culture, Society & Media, and International Relations & Peace Studies, which comprise the four fields of study in the College of Asia Pacific Studies. While learning research skills, students will travel to designated host regions, carry out field research based on their research proposals, and compile their results in a research report. Through the program, students can gain a practical understanding of the research process from beginning to end.
Field research will take place from August 25 and 30 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Professor Hiroki Tahara from the College of Asia Pacific Studies will act as a field leader for the program.
Once onsite, students participating in the program will share their field research and other activities through Instagram posts. We invite you to follow the Instagram account to stay up to date on the program’s progress.
