On Nov 8 and 9 “Student Fair” was held in Luxembourg. Many higher education institutions worldwide participated to appeal their presence to prospective students. Yurie Matsumura, a staff from Sophia Luxembourg Office and five Sophia students currently studying at University of Luxembourg attended the booth of Embassy of Japan in Luxembourg providing informations of studying abroad in Japan and also of Sophia University to students with interests visiting the booth.
About 10000 people visited the fair and was its 32nd time for the event to be held.
