The National University of San Marcos and the University of Tsukuba established their respective satellite offices in Japan and Peru
On February 9, 2021, a ceremony was held to inaugurate the satellite offices of the Universidad Nacional de San Marcos (UNMSM) in Peru and the University of Tsukuba. The Peruvian office (Study in Japan) was established on the Peruvian side, while the University of Tsukuba has a satellite office (Study in Peru) in the university's Overseas Commons, which is expected to further strengthen human resource development and exchange between the two countries. On the ceremony, we had Mr. KATAYAMA Kazuyuki, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Japan to Peru, Mr. Eduardo Rafael Bernales Mesa, Director General of the Department of Educational Relations and Sports of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Peru, and Dr. Orestes Cachay Boza, President of the National University of San Marcos.
Since 2017, we have been working with the National University of San Marcos to build a network between the universities of the two countries by holding study abroad fairs and presidents' meetings. The National University of San Marcos is also the organizer of the Peruvian Network for the Internationalization of National Universities (Runai), a network of 12 universities in Peru, and is expected to function as a hub for university exchange between the two countries. In addition, as an institution selected by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) for the Promotion of Collaboration among Overseas Study Centers in Japan (South America), the University of Tsukuba is working to strengthen ties with South American countries in order to promote study in Japan on an all-Japan basis. The establishment of this satellite office is expected to further strengthen human resource development and exchange between the two countries.
