New Horizons for Student Mobility 2005

Apr 1, 2005

The first New Horizons for Student Mobility 2005 conference was held at Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University, Beppu, Japan on the 21st– 23rd March, 2005.Since 2004 the International section of the Academic Office at APU has been striving to bring Student Mobility into a new realm. In recent times, there has been a great movement in Japan towards nurturing Japanese students, in particular, who can function efficiently and effectively using English in the business world. We are currently in the process of a dramatic upscale in all areas of student mobility and aim to send approximately 700 students abroad annually by 2007.

With this goal in mind, APU hosted a conference for International Office staff from our renowned partners around the world to provide a forum for sharing of experiences and knowledge. A number of keynote speakers also made significant contributions to the conference presenting their invaluable insights in the areas of student mobility and international strategy.

New Horizons 2005 gave us all the opportunity to be inspired as we work towards a common goal in education. Delegates from thirteen countries attended the event and despite the incessant rain, enjoyed a tour of APU facilities as well as the various sights and culinary delights of Beppu during their three day visit.
