AIU 2019 Study Abroad Fair a Success!

The Student Hall was colorfully decorated with posters and balloons for AIU 2019 Study Abroad Fair events on June 28. Exchange students and AIU senior students representing 35 partner universities from 18 countries and regions volunteered to recruit new students to study abroad at AIU’s 195 international partner universities.
More than 100 students visited over the course of the fair to talk with the enthusiastic volunteers and gather attractive and memorable university goods provided by our partner universities.

Exchange students representing HAN University of Applied Sciences, Arnhem Business School (Netherlands) and volunteer students from Maynooth University (Ireland) share their experiences with future study abroad students.

Returnee students from Thammasat University (Thailand) made beautiful decorations for their booth.

All Akita International University students are required to study abroad for a year at one of our partner universities. The annual study abroad fair is their best opportunity to get information about their options. Exchange students from our partners, as well as AIU students who have returned, pass out pamphlets and promotional goods supplied by our partners, and talk about their own personal experiences to encourage others to follow in their footsteps.

European and Oceanian booths were packed with students asking about campus life at partner institutions.

Exchange students from University of South Florida (USA) explaining about their home institution with pictures and videos.

Exchange students representing Mississippi State University (USA) with his university shirt on handed brochures to students and shared his experience.

Thank you to all of our volunteer students and partner universities who made this fair a success!
