Chubu U. Students Spend Semester Down Under

A group of 20 second-year students from Chubu University in Nagoya recently returned from a semester at the University of New England in Australia, according to the The Armidale Express. The semester was a compulsory overseas-study component of their English language program, for which they will receive credit at Chubu. They spent a total of 288 classroom hours at the UNE's Language Training Centre. They also joined UNE linguistics students for lectures and discussions in an undergraduate unit called ‘cross-cultural communication study'. Professor Tadashi Shiozawa, Chairman of Chubu's Department of English Language and Culture, and Professor Taijiro Nonaka, director of the university's Centre for International Programs, travelled to Armidale in New South Wales for the students' farewell ceremony. The two colleges plan to begin student, and possibly staff, exchanges as early as next year.
