Entered by Global Entrance Examination

筑波大学_学生I had been living in the U.S. from 7th grade when I passed the entrance exam for local universities, however, since the tuition was expensive and international students couldn’t get enough financial support, I decided to study at a Japanese University. As well as being surrounded by nature and having a rich international environment, this is a national university with exceptional agricultural research equipment. Since I was little I have had an interest in learning about plants and because of these points I decided to study at the University of Tsukuba.
