The University of Tsukuba Sao Paulo Office set the “STUDY in JAPAN” booth at the festival from August 26 to 27, as part of the “Coordinator for Study in Japan Project in Brazil” project sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT).
Colégio ETAPA is one of the most prestigious private high schools in Brazil, which has a high interest in studying abroad. The fair attracted about 1,300 people in two days.
Thirteen universities in Japan and the Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO) cooperated to provide information at the “STUDY in JAPAN” booth.
