Live stream Registers will be notified individually

By way of celebrating the 50th anniversary of the University of Tsukuba and capitalizing on the accelerating pace of digital transformation in the post-COVID-19 era, we strive to build win-win networks that connect our university, international alumni, current and incoming international students, and Japanese alumni overseas by attaching added value to the identity of Tsukuba students and alumni.
More specifically, we interact with each other by introducing different cases of overseas alumni associations and activities of current international student associations in different countries. For instance, a virtual campus tour is prepared by our current international students. Accordingly, we provide various activities to promote and share our university heritage.
Today the style of communication has shifted from onsite human exchanges to online virtual interactions. As special barriers begin to fade, we connect with international alumni and current international students to imagine the future together in this new era.

Notes This event is mainly intended for international students and overseas alumni of the University of Tsukuba.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but the moderator, greetings, and introductions in the plenary session will be in Japanese.
The second part, group free talk, is not limited to Japanese language.

This is a casual event, so please enjoy it while eating and drinking!
This event will be conducted using "oVice ", an online tool that provides a virtual, free space to chat.

Please note that we don't issue any certification of participation to this TGSW 2021 session.
