Five-Continent Student Symposium

【Last Updated: September 25, 2019】

With the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 opening next year,  we will be hosting a symposium, titled “Five-Continent Student symposium” -- “Five Continent”, from which the symbol of the  Olympics stems --, as a supporting program for the Tokyo 2020 Games!
TMU will strive to encourage international exchange between our students and students invited from our strategic partners and over 20 countries and regions across the world and to boost our university’s international presence.  Furthermore,  we would like to contribute to  creating a conductive atmosphere for the Games, by offering an opportunity for our students and invited students to participate in a panel discussion on the theme of “Unity in Diversity”, “Connecting to Tomorrow”, which are the concepts of the Tokyo 2020 Games. We make the first part of the symposium open to the public in order to welcome public audience.  Please take this opportunity, visiting our campus.
