What do you enjoy about Tsukuba (University of Tsukuba and Tsukuba City)?

Since University of Tsukuba is the predecessor of Tokyo University of Education, I think it is the best university to study my major, education science. In particular, the university library has a wide range of materials from the past to the present, and I think it is a very attractive place for research. One of the advantages of University of Tsukuba is that it has a lot of prestigious faculties, so I can receive detailed instructions.

In addition, University of Tsukuba is able to study not only humanities and natural sciences, but also a wide range of fields such as physical education and art & design, so I can broaden my horizon. Also, I am interested in ballet, so I practiced ballet once a week at university through a subject called " Physical Education for Graduate School." I also could enjoy my life there, engaging with people who are doing research that is completely different from my own.

What do you want to accomplish as a student of the University of Tsukuba during your study period?

What I want to accomplish through studying at University of Tsukuba is to get clues to discover the lifework that I will be working on in the future. Ever since I was a child, I have liked to spend time with children younger than me. So I have wanted to become a school teacher in the future and to study education sciences. While studying education sciences, I realized that both research and practice is important to support children's growth. Therefore, I would like to not only devote myself to research activities but also engage with many children while I am at university. For example, I would like to engage with children from diverse backgrounds through various opportunities such as university classes, volunteer activities, internships, laboratory seminars, and teaching practice. I believe those various experiences would help me to accomplish my goal as an educator.
