Tohoku University Joins JV Campus with Student-led Communication Events

Japan Virtual Campus is a platform hosted by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), for participating Japanese universities to share educational content.

The "Study in Japan Special Box" currently has four categories: Learn about Japan and Japanese Universities, Special Courses at Japanese Universities, Communication Programmes and Messages from Students in Japan.

Each category offers lectures, events and special content that is aimed at international students waiting to enter Japan, as well as anyone who is interested in finding out more about Japanese universities.
