With the growing interest in foreign collaborations, especially Japan, Andhra University is planning to offer a certificate and diploma course in Japanese language from the academic year 2015-16, Andhra University Vice-Chancellor G.S.N. Raju has said.

The recent visit of Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu to Japan and Singapore to invite investors from that country to set up industries here has given a need for offering foreign language courses. The university has planned to offer courses in Russian, German, French and Japanese. There is a shortage of faculty to teach Russian and Japanese, the Vice-Chancellor has told a visiting delegation from Mitsubishi Corporation India Pvt Ltd.

The Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) is ready to send a Japanese national for teaching the language and training local talent for a short period, Ajay Vargu of the Regional Strategy and Coordination Department of Mitsubishi Corporation has said. “We have already talked to the officials concerned in JICA on the subject. The JICA would bear the entire cost of travel and stay of the resource person for a period of two years,” he has said and added that they have already broached the subject with Delhi University administration and they too are willing to extend support in terms of framing of syllabus etc.

Resource centre

The Mitsubishi Corporation has offered to set up the Japanese Resource Centre in Andhra University and requested the Vice-Chancellor for allotting space for it. The university will include the course in its admission notification scheduled to be released soon and offer the course from the academic year 2015-16.
