[Report] A TUFS student has started the exchange program at University of Zambia (Zambia)

Ilyas Hirose, a third-year French language student at the TUFS, started his exchange program at the University of Zambia from 11th July 2022.
Ilyas will study at the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies in the Faculty of Natural Science for about six months. The department includes Dr. Godfrey Hampwaye, who was invited by African Studies Center at TUFS and we are sure that it will be a stimulating 6 months of learning for the students.

Here is the message from Ilyas who has just arrived in Zambia.

Message from Ilyas

Hello everyone, my name is Ilyas Hirose, a third-year student in the school of international and area studies.
I am currently on a study abroad program in Zambia, a country located in southern Africa. I am assigned to the Department of Geography and Environment Studies at
the University of Zambia, our partner university, where I will study environmental planning and natural resource management. As environmental issues are being discussed as global issues, I hope to gain a more flexible perspective by studying cross-border issues in an African country far away from Japan, which is experiencing remarkable economic growth. Also, I did not know much about Zambia before coming here, but I would like to learn a lot about the culture and history of this country as well as my own major through my study abroad program.
Lastly, I would like to express my gratitude to the Inter-University Exchange Project for their support in helping me to make this study abroad possible.
