:Biological Sciences, School of Agricultural Sciences (class of 2016)
The classes here are difficult but that is good so I got motivated to study more. We also have the chance to broaden our knowledge because Nagoya University, especially the G30 program encourages students to participate in Liberal Arts curriculum which means the natural science or engineering students should take some classes from social science courses and vice versa. Moreover, I found it is really interesting knowing students and teachers from different countries because I can learn many things from those differences.
Coming to Japan is really a great experience in my life. I can enjoy the nice public transportation, learn Japanese, enjoy the beautiful sceneries of a four season country and meet new people. I also have opportunities to introduce my country’s culture to foreign people through several activities with the Indonesian community in Nagoya.
Being a student here is a great opportunity for me to know many people from many different countries. Through these people, I can make many connections thus it will be beneficial for my future work, since we are in globalization era right now. There is also the CDO*, which helps us to plan our future after graduating from Nagoya University. If we are interested to work in certain companies, we can attend some seminars from those multinational companies. And I already got interviewed by a Japanese company to join an internship. It is such a good experience for me.
