On February 19, 2018, the UMAP International Secretariat (Prof. Shingo Ashizawa) along with eight additional specialists from Canada, ISEP, U.S.A., and Japan had an ad hoc meeting at Marriot Wardman Park, Washington, D.C. Topics such as ‘promotional activities and membership development of UMAP in North America’ were discussed. The potential development of new programs which attract universities and students in North America was also introduced at the meeting.
On February 15, 2018, the 1st UMAP Task Force Meeting for “UMAP’s Organizational Development” was held at Toyo University (Tokyo, Japan). Representatives from Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan, and Thailand had fruitful discussions with the UMAP International Secretariat through the new online video conference system.
Dr.Michael S. Steinburg, the Executive Vice President for Academic Programs at IES abroad, also gave the honor of joining the conference to give additional insights to UMAP.
The date of the UMAP Discovery Camp 2018 has been finalized!
Further detailed information about the program activities and application will be provided shortly.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Dear Students who still wish to apply for UMAP Program A&B 2018-1 (for Autumn Semester 2018),
We are pleased to announce that the 2nd cycle of student applications for Programs A&B 2018-1 (Autumn 2018) has started. If you are interested in participating in one of these programs, please review the information on the website (http://umap.org/programs/a_b/ ) about the programs’ contents, length, available credits, language requirement and fees before applying.
The common application form for Programs A&B is available on the UMAP website (http://umap.org/forstudents/#application-procedure). The application deadline for UMAP Coordinators at your home university is 5 March 2018; therefore, you need to submit your application according to the adapted schedule of your home institution.
For the acceptance of students’ applications, the following two steps must be completed:
APPLICATION — Students should complete the application form for their desired program in WORD format and submit it to the UMAP Coordinator at their home university/institution. Once the UMAP Coordinators receive the UMAP Application Form from their students, they will select which students to nominate to the UMAP International Secretariat (UMAP-IS) and send all selected application forms to the UMAP-IS by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
REGISTRATION — Coordinators need to register the information of each applicant at the designated page on the website (http://umap.org/members/ )
2. A maximum of two (2) students can be nominated by each university per semester; regardless, it may be possible to nominate additional students on a fee-paying basis depending on the policies of the host institutions.
We look forward to receiving additional applications.
Dear UMAP colleagues in National Secretariat and member universities,
We are pleased to announce that we are now collecting additional program information for the second cycle of Programs A&B 2018-1 (Autumn 2018).
The programs of those universities, who participated in the first cycle and whose two seats aren’t filled up, will be continued to be effective for the second cycle. Therefore you do not have to send the form once again.
We are looking forward to receiving additional participation.
