This initiative will also promote the education of youth and research.

To this end, it has established a facility in which students can take all of their courses in English. At the signing ceremony, President Takemura made the following comment, “Our university has been selected by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology as a part of its Top Global University Project. So it is with great pleasure that we have signed an MoU with an international non-profit organization like APIC.” He also stated that he will be pleased to expect further cooperative projects based on the new link under the rubric of the MoU.
