Japanese Students to Learn about Tseng College Programs

(NORTHRIDGE, June 26, 2013) – California State University, Northridge reaches more than 5,400 miles away to Japan when the Intensive English Program travels to Tokyo Oct. 6-11 to meet Japanese students, university representatives and international agencies to promote CSUN.

Universities from around the world will attend a Wish International Inc. education fair Oct. 6 in Roppongi Hills, a new urban center in Tokyo.

"I am very excited be return to Japan and share with prospective Japanese students the many option available at California State University, Northridge for their international studies," said Vanessa Andrade, international programs and outreach manager for the Tseng College. "We have an academically focused Intensive English Program for students to acquire English-language skills for success at an American college or university."

Nearly 20,000 Japanese college students came to American colleges and universities in 2011/12 to study, with Japan ranking seventh in the top 25 countries that have college-age students studying abroad, according to the Institute of International Education's Open Doors Report on International Educational Exchange.

While in Japan, Vanessa also expects to share information about CSUN programs at Japanese universities and with international agencies. "I look forward to meeting students and education representatives to give them details about Conditional Admission and Semester at CSUN. I would love to connect with students, universities and agencies interested in learning more about CSUN, the Tseng College pathways program into the university, and graduate degrees and certificate programs offered by CSUN."
