Message from Students

Runsinarith PHIM (DID Ph.D. Course)

It was my privilege to be awarded the Japanese government "Monbugakusho" scholarship twice and thanks to that I was able to complete both my undergraduate and postgraduate study in Japan. Looking back, the three years of my academic journey towards my PhD at GSID have been sometimes tough but very rewarding in terms of helping me to become a professional. GSID is an incredible place where I and other students enjoyed opportunities to conduct research that we are excited about. My academic life was not always easy but I always received enlightenment and encouragement in such difficult times from academic advisors, professors and friends. GSID had a profound impact on me. I gained a certain sense of independence and thoroughly expanded my knowledge and perspective. GSID was incredibly valuable because it was where I could learn to see economic development from a different perspective and it is where I could discover a better understanding on contemporary social and economic structures as well as quantitative analytical tools, which became indispensable in my professional life. Just as importantly, I met so many brilliant mind professors and friends who challenged me to view the world through a different lens from a different perspective.

As an African from Nigeria, if I was asked to choose again an institute for graduate studies in Education and Human Resource Management, I would definitely chose GSID over and over simply because of the unique atmosphere of professionals with vast international backgrounds and continual field experiences in the area of uniting theories, principles and real life situation. My greatest impression of GSID is the level of opportunities it offers her students in the development of academic potentials, which is embedded in research, fueled by academic atmosphere of fellowship, partnership between faculty members and graduate students as we all journey towards the pursuit of academic excellence beyond the realms of geographical boundaries and limitations.
One unique feature of GSID as an higher intellectual institution is that it engages in an unceasing process of inquiry where teachers does not exist solely for the sake the students; rather both teachers and students have their justification in the common pursuit of knowledge, therefore, teachers and students are simply co-researchers.
I earnestly wish GSID would extend its Academic Network to Sub-Saharan African as it has done with Asia. I am proud to be a graduate student of GSID, Nagoya University.
