Online University Visit

Message from the Organizer

In 2014 we JST started the “Sakura Science Exchange Program” which is the short-term invitation program. Since then, we have invited over 33,000 talented young people from foreign countries and regions mainly from Asia and have given them the opportunity to experience both Japan’s cutting-edge science and technology and culture.

Since the beginning of last year 2020, we JST has made efforts to realize the invitations of excellent high school students by SSHP “Sakura Science High School Program”, but we cannot help suspending all invitations due to COVID-19. JST and the Japanese universities which the invitees were supposed to visit planned and studied the program of “Online University Visit” which utilized the essence of SSHP. Our program of “Online University Visit” aims to introduce the attraction of Japanese universities to young foreign people such as high school students and undergraduate students. We do hope you will enjoy program of “Online University Visit” and experience academic attraction of the university in Japan.

Regarding the future of “Sakura Science Exchange Program”, JST will continue the invitation program with real visit as the indispensable and at the same time, will actively promote online program with virtual visit which many people can participate in.

Thank you.
