Saint Maur hosted its annual Yokohama College Fair
Saint Maur hosted its annual Yokohama College Fair on Wednesday 14 November 2018. This Fair brings together universities in Japan which offer four-year degree programs taught in English with September admission, open to graduates of international schools, and this is the 13th year in a row that it has been held at Saint Maur. The attendees included 44 admission personnel and professors from 22 universities from every region of Japan, as well as a total of 238 students, 20 parents, and 18 counselors from 13 schools.
This is the only event of its kind held in all of Japan. The atmosphere was lively and stimulating, as students and parents thronged around the tables of each of the universities, learning about the unique programs offered by each one. Grade 12 students focused on the universities where they had already decided to apply, asking the admissions staff specific and concrete questions about the application process. The event was, by all accounts, a great success. It will be held again next November.Glenn Scoggins
