I worked for an airline company in Korea before coming to IPU, and that job required me to offer a variety of services to many people.I came to Japan to learn the Japanese way of treating people and sophisticated manners for my next career. I like Japan even more after experiencing customer services myself in Japan. Here at IPU, lecturers teach us with enthusiasm and give us a lot of knowledge. I am having a fulfilling life by understanding different cultures and helping each other. I feel that I can grow as a person through the experience at IPU. I will make every minute count and keep challenging to make my dreams come true.
I have learned in an international environment, and the experience made me grow as a person. I have made a lot of friends, and learned many things. Everyone here is really friendly, and we enjoy life at IPU.Studying in Japan is sometimes tough. In my case, I found it difficult to communicate with other students and lecturers in Japanese when I first came to Japan. However, I have studied Japanese really hard with support and encouragement from lecturers and friends, and now my Japanese skills have improved. Living by myself was another challenge as I needed to do everything by myself. I could overcome these difficulties with support from my friends, family, and the lecturers. I keep trying to achieve my goals.
2 years ago when I first entered IPU, I felt a little lonely as my Japanese skills were not good enough and it was difficult to communicate with Japanese students. However the classes at IPU made me confident with my Japanese skills, and gave us opportunities to get along with other students. Now I enjoy the life at IPU.I would like to be a global person in the future, and I think English is essential to achieve the goal. IPU give us many opportunities to use English inside and outside of the classroom. At IPU, we can learn business in a practical manner so that we can apply what we learned to the future. I’m sure I can achieve my goals by learning specialized knowledge with students from more than 10 countries at IPU.
I really like IPU! I’m glad that I chose IPU.Through interaction with Japanese students and international students, I could learn not only Japanese but also English and other cultures. Even though I find it a little difficult understanding some technical words, I will not give up as I need to overcome these difficulties to succeed.Classes are lively, and studying at IPU is really fun. I am happy to be an IPU student.
While studying Business, I study English and Spanish, and participate in volunteer activities. I was not sure what I would do in the future before I came to IPU, but the lecturers helped me find one. Now, I am doing my best to achieve my dreams with the support from the lecturers. I am currently doing research on global companies and wishing to go to a postgraduate school to extend my knowledge. IPU will help us achieve any dreams.
Coming to IPU was a very interesting choice as it was a relatively new University. I saw it as an opportunity to be part of helping IPU become a great University. As a bonus, IPU have a rugby team. It is my 3rd year now and I am finally comfortable in the IPU way of life. My communication is much improved and the classes are getting better with more variety.
Since coming to IPU, right from the first week, countless opportunities have been offered to us along with the support we need to undertake them.The other international students have been nothing but warm and welcoming. They have helped us settle in and kindly answered the endless questions we threw at them.This opportunity will help you grow a thick skin and teach yourself to identify your individual strengths and weaknesses.
I am studying in an environment filled with students from around the world, who also share the same goals and passions as me. Being here at IPU, I have had so many experiences, such as helping IPU with Open Campus, becoming a volunteer outside of IPU, to helping Japanese people learn my native language- it has been very fun.I have so many opportunities to use and improve my Japanese inside and outside of the classroom. Everyday is a challenge. But thanks to IPU, my Japanese and confidence has improved significantly.
I have been able to make friends with Vietnamese and Uzbekistan and of course Japanese.There is a saying, “Strangers are friends you haven’t met yet”. You will face some troubles studying abroad. Just remember to keep your head held up high and be optimistic. If you ever have a chance to do something you have never tried, do it. Wanting to study abroad was due to the fact that I wanted to learn a new language which resulted into experiencing a new culture and new life.
