On March 11th, the 3rd KU-GLOCS Symposium, “Kanazawa University Brand” Human Resources Starting Global Career, took place. This symposium aimed to directly communicate to high school students, their teachers, and those involved in our university including our faculty, staff and students, what our university has achieved in the past two and half years and future plans, as well as to promote globalization in Ishikawa Prefecture. The symposium was planned in cooperation with 11 high schools in Ishikawa.

Afterward, 3 KU students whose career path have opened up by study abroad experience or international internship and 4 high school students with study abroad experience reported and shared their progress. In the panel discussion that followed, the panelists discussed on the topics of “What is needed in order to find global career?”
