The Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Informatics of the Comenius University in Bratislava has recently signed a bilateral agreement about cooperation and student exchanges with Akita University in Japan. Based on this agreement, three Japanese students - Kent Akimoto, Yusei Sayama and Saaya Konno - came to Bratislava this semester and are currently enrolled in the Bachelor and Master programs at our Faculty. These three are the very first Japanese students officially enrolled at the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Informatics. While in Bratislava, they will study Mathematics and Applied Informatics.
All costs associated with their studies as well as their living expenses are covered by a grant obtained by their Japanese home institution.
This first group of Japanese students is to be followed by other groups in the coming years. As a part of this project, our partners at Akita University have been awarded a multi-year grant to support Japanese students at our Faculty. Furthermore, such student exchange stays are intended to be reciprocal, and in the future our Faculty is also expected to send Slovakian students to Japan.
Our faculty has a long established record of cooperation with major Japanese universities in the fields of Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics. Exchange study visits of our and Japanese students constitute a new extension of these activities that will guarantee future continuation of this useful and productive collaboration.
