PEACE Student Exchange Program offered a one-week study tour in Cambodia from February 25 to March 3, 2019. During the program, the participants visited two cities in Cambodia, that is, Siem Reap and Phnom Penh.
The study tour was designed for PEACE students to develop an international mindset as well as a deeper understanding of international cooperation taking place in Cambodia. The students visited various places of cultural importance such as Angkor temples (wherein we also visited the Sophia Asia Center for Research and Human Development) or S-21, local NPOs (Little Angels, SALASUSU, Anacott Cambodia), JICA Cambodia Office, and some of Hiroshima University’s partner universities in Cambodia.
One big feature of this year’s study tour program was that the HU students worked on a Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) project with the students of the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP). They participated in an HU-RUPP joint student presentation session on the RUPP campus where the student groups presented their COIL research project outcomes in English.
