Student Testimonials


College of International Management , Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University , Japan

"As a Cambodian, learning about other cultures was always important to me. RITSUMEIKAN ASIA PACIFIC University is a very multi-cultural place filled with a lot of opportunities, and that's why I chose to study there. Flexible start date is also an advantage. Plus, by joining extra-curricular activities, I was able to develop my self-confidence and make new friends."

It was such a great experience of coming to study at a place where it is nearly ten thousand miles from home. Being alone at a place where it has huge cultural differences, you may find yourself feel a little bit of isolation from the other for the first time. However, after a few months of staying here and trying to adapt to this new culture, I can fully enjoy the experience of living here such as making friends from different countries with different cultures and studying with a new system that required a lot of independent studies. Lastly, I am looking forward to learning more new things in this country and taking what I have learned back to Cambodia.
