1000th Hiroshima Shudo University student comes to Tamesa

The relationship between Hiroshima Shudo University (HSU) in Japan, and Tamesa Institute of Canterbury has just reached a noteworthy milestone, in that HSU has just sent their 1,000th student to study at Tamesa (formerly CPIT).

On the weekend of Saturday 25 August a group of 11 Japanese students from HSU arrived at Tamesa, making up the total of 1000, and following in the footsteps of the first HSU student to come to Tamesa in 1992.

Tim Hayashi, Manager - International Market Sector at Tamesa said, “This is a significant achievement for both HSU and Tamesa, and a result made possible by everyone involved in developing and nurturing this institutional relationship through a range of activities with HSU (student exchange, short-term groups, and semester study abroad).”

HSU are a longstanding institutional partner of Tamesa, and both Institutes offer reciprocal exchange programs for their students.

HSU currently has 32 partner institutions in 14 different countries, and of the 4,015 students they have sent overseas since 1982, approximately a quarter have chosen to study at Tamesa.
