UTokyo LAINAC strives to make opportunities where the students of UTokyo, both undergrads and graduate school students, can interact with and encourage each other to work hard and challenge themselves. The number of such opportunities continues to grow ; for instance, one of our partner universities, El Colegio de Mexico, has prepared a summer program grant for the UTokyo students. We strongly encourage you to make the best out of such chances. For those who wish to know what opportunities of study-abroad are available, please refer to the website titled “Go Global” as well as “Study Abroad : Opportunities”.
Moreover, there is a program called “Global Praxis”, where UTokyo students visit Latin America and Iberia for approximately two weeks to thoroughly experience the culture, history, cuisine and livings of these regions through interacting with university students there. More specifically, there has been a program for visiting Mexico which offers opportunities to encounter friends for travelling, visiting the remains of the Mayan civilizations and the Caribbean, and spending a fruitful quality time with young Mexican college students. Likewise, there is also a program exclusively for graduate school students. Opportunities where UTokyo graduate school students can deeply interact with scholars or graduate school students of Spanish-speaking countries in Spanish or English will surely be an asset, which would not be possible to acquire in Japan.
