The students said that the reasons for choosing Japan to complete their higher education is its progress in the fields of scientific research and engineering, as well as their willingness to recognise the Japanese unique culture which has some similar values of Arab culture and traditions.

Sheikha Moza confirmed her support and encouragement to the Qatari students in Japan to continue their educational journey and then return to Qatar with, not only the academic certificate, but also with the positive Japanese customs.
