On 21-24 November, Kobe University participated in PhD Workshop China 2015 (on 21-22 November in Beijing and on 24 November in Shanghai, China). The Workshop has been held every year since 2009 with the aim of facilitating the exchange of information between Chinese students interested in pursuing their PhDs abroad and overseas institutions, including universities. This year, there were approximately 80 participating institutions from all over the world. Kobe University participated in the Workshop for the first time.

The Workshop was conducted mainly in the format of students visiting the booths of participating institutions. More than 100 prospective students visited our booth and we provided them with individual consultations. We answered a variety of questions about the details of research projects, information regarding entrance examinations, skills and qualifications required, and financial concerns such as scholarships and tuition fees. Prospective students who visited our booth actively engaged with us in gathering information, and some of them started in earnest to prepare for studying at Kobe University.
