Dear Prof. Hada
Hello, how are you? I would like to thank you again for inviting me to the Seminar.
It was obviously a great chance as a presenter to expose my doctoral research on student migration in Japan (and Korea) to both Japanese and International scholars & researchers, and many postgraduate students who are currently doing research which relates to the higher education in Japan and elsewhere. More than I anticipated, I received numerous lively and productive feedbacks, and helpful comments from all participants and audiences on various cultural, economic and institutional issues in student migration, highly skilled migration (Global Talent issues), and internationalization of higher education in Japan
Certainly the seminar has provided me with a great opportunity to establish a new academic network with both Japanese and international scholars and researchers, which surely enables me to exchange and share my further research outcomes and new ideas with the scholars, researchers and postgraduate students with similar research interests in various higher education issues at international level.
In particular, concerning my doctoral research topics, since part of my research has examined various impacts of anti-immigrant sentiments and the growing influence of far-right parties on international student migration in the EU and UK before and after the Brexit, it was literally possible for me to directly encounter and interact with scholars and researchers from UK, and during the networking event and dinner, I had a great chance to discuss with them about many issues on changes and challenges in student migration policies in UK and EU.
I am looking forward to having a next chance to share my research with RIJUE and CHEER in the near future.
Dear Prof. Hada
