With the “Live Locally, Grow Globally” motto, Osaka University has endeavored to internationalize and attract increasing numbers of international students and build research collaboration with institutions worldwide. As a part of this, CAREN has taken a role in helping to spread Osaka University’s wings by setting up international master/Ph.D. and double degree programs with overseas partners.

Last year, CAREN organized a successful English speech contest for students at the University’s Icho Festival; the theme was “How can Osaka University shine on the international stage?” For this year’s Speech Contest, we would like to focus on the motto once more with the theme “How can Osaka University be more active in the local community?” We invite all students studying at Osaka University to apply to speak at the Contest and we look for your insight from various perspectives.
