Students at The University of the South Pacific’s (USP) Labasa Campus and Savusavu Centre were hosted to an information session about the Japan East-Asia Network for the Exchange of Students and Youths (JENESYS) programme on 5 September 2018.

Fifteen (15) students, and staff members interested in pursuing opportunities as supervisors of JENESYS 2018 attended the session which was conducted by Mr Elvis Kumar, JENESYS Project Assistant.

The JENESYS programme he said, is a cultural exchange programme, fully funded by the Government of Japan through its Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is coordinated by USP between 14 Pacific Island Countries and Australia and New Zealand.

“The aim of this programme is to further strengthen the relations between Pacific Island communities and the people of Japan,” he said.

A thorough discussion was conducted on the criteria for application for JENESYS 2018 and tour dates and themes were also shared.

Mr Kumar encouraged students to apply and look at the opportunity provided by JENEYSY 2018 in order to broaden their knowledge and understanding of Japanese people, country and its culture.

The JENESYS programme involves a 9-day cultural exchange for Pacific Island students to Japan where they visit local communities, homestays, universities, historical sites and organisations.
